He made the surprise announcement to Greens colleagues this morning.

Richard Di Natale has resigned as leader of the Greens, on the eve of federal parliament returning for the political year.

Senator Di Natale has led the Greens for nearly five years but said he wanted to spend more time with his family.

"It's a tough, demanding job. It's been a privilege to do it. But I've got to the point in my life where I've got two young boys [and] I want to be there for them," he told The Sydney Morning Herald.

The 10-member Greens party room will vote for a new leadership team tomorrow.

More to come.
