Car bomb exploded outside The Australian Christian Lobby office

The Australian Christian Lobby’s Canberra office has been rammed by a van, reportedly carrying gas bottles which exploded overnight.

News Corp reports a man is believed to have driven the white van towards the Eternity House building in Canberra late last night.

Lyle Shelton, the lobby’s director, tweeted two pictures early this morning showing a burnt out van rammed into the front of the office building but said no staff had been injured.


The Australian Christian Lobby is known for lobbying against same-sex marriage and the controversial Safe Schools program.

The explosion last night caused the building’s ground floor windows to explode.

The driver is in hospital reportedly receiving treatment for his injuries.
