Australia will create a new government super-ministry to oversee all its domestic national security agencies, PM Malcolm Turnbull has said.

The portfolio will be modeled on the UK Home Office.

The Home Affairs ministry, to be headed by current Immigration Minister Peter Dutton, will manage security agencies including police and intelligence.

 Turnbull described it as the most significant reform of national security arrangements "in more than 40 years".
