JULIA Gillard has arrived in Canberra and will meet Governor-General Quentin Bryce at 10.30am to set a date for a federal election.
The PM's office has confirmed that the Prime Minister will hold a press conference at noon.
August 21 or 28 are the anticipated dates for the election.
Ms Gillard is then expected to travel to Brisbane, where Labor has to make up ground following the dumping of Kevin Rudd.
Ms Gillard smiled, but said nothing to reporters outside her western Melbourne home, as she was driven away just after 7am (AEST).
The media is already camped outside Government House in Canberra.
