Two Australian cabinet ministers have resigned over unrelated scandals.

Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Jamie Briggs quit after a public servant complained about his behaviour at a Hong Kong bar.

Special Minister of State Mal Brough quit pending a police inquiry into his role in another politician's downfall.

With two front bench cabinet positions to fill in a day, this is the first major setback to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull since he took office.

He refused to comment on the specific nature of the incident and did not name the public servant who made the allegations.
