Australians will go to the polls on 2 July after the longest election campaign in the country's history, foreign media reports.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has called the election several months early after the country's upper house repeatedly blocked legislation.

On Sunday the prime minister asked the Governor-General, Sir Peter Cosgrove, to dissolve both the lower and upper houses of parliament.

The economy, education and health are likely to dominate the campaign.
