Abstract: The High Court of Australia has throughout the majority of its history been reluctant to grant special leave to appeal in cases involving appeals against sentence. Due to this reluctance the development of Australian sentencing principles by the High Court was stultified. Fortunately, this reluctance to develop sentencing principles began to fall away in the 1970's and the High Court has since that time become an active facilitator of sentencing jurisprudence. As a consequence it is now possible to detail distinct Australian sentencing principles. The history of this change of approach by the High Court will be considered as will the reasons for the lack of development of Australian sentencing principles.
