The delegation is made up of its leader Senator Derryn Hinch from the Justice Party of Australia, Deputy leader Kevin Andrews who is a former Defence Minister and belongs to the Liberal Party, Senator Kimberly Kitching from the Labor Party of Australia, and Meryl Jane Swanson who is also from the Labor Party of Australia. The delegation is accompanied by Representative Lhakpa Tshoko of the Office of Tibet, Canberra.
