The prime minister has two official houses, Kirribilli House in Sydney and The Lodge in Canberra and, unlike Scott Morrison, Mr Albanese has chosen the latter as home.
Ms Tame responded to the news with a tweet to her boyfriend Max Heerey, saying ‘we might be allowed back after all lol’.
She was referring to her infamous appearance at The Lodge on January 25, when she could barely bring herself to even look at then-PM Mr Morrison.

Pictures of the frosty encounter at the morning tea for Australian of the Year nominees went viral over Ms Tame’s brutal reaction.
The 27-year-old Tasmanian couldn’t bear to look the PM in the eye as they shook hands and made her contempt clear as she stood alongside him for a group photo.
Mr Morrison’s wife, Jenny, later said she wished Ms Tame had shown more ‘manners and respect’ after being invited into The Lodge.
‘I just found a little bit disappointing, because we were welcoming her in our home,’ she said.
‘I just wish the focus had been on all the incredible people coming in.
‘I respect people that want to change things, stand up for their beliefs, and are strong, but I still think there are manners and respect.’
If the Coalition won last month’s election that the chances of Ms Tame, 27, ever being invited back to The Lodge for any reason were slim.
But there’s a new boss in town and he seems to get along well with the sexual assault survivors’ advocate – at the very least they smile at each other in photographs.

Ms Tame said she doesn’t have a ‘friendship’ with Mr Albanese, but does have hopes for what he will do as PM.
On election night on May 21, Ms Tame posted a picture of the pair to social media adding: ‘A grateful nation is crying with you. And who said I didn’t smile at the prime minister?
‘Here’s to inclusion, integrity, diversity, truth, equity, respect, safety and change. A better future. For all of us. For the planet.
‘Congratulations to @albomp, and to the people of Australia — for a triumph over corruption and abuse. A triumph of hope. Today was a victory for us all.’

The Morrisons mainly lived in Kirribilli House while Mr Morrison was prime minister, and took almost two weeks to move out after the Coalition lost the election.
This led to him being called ‘Squat Morrison’, as he overstayed 13 days with Jenny and their daughters Lily and Abbey.
Mr Albanese had to meet government officials at his own home in the Sydney suburb of Marrickville while he waited for the Morrisons to move out.
Mr Morrison finally appeared to be finally leaving the residence when two bright orange Allied removal trucks arrived at the heritage-listed home on Friday.

Mr Albanese, meanwhile revealed he was abandoning his home city as he believed Canberra had been ‘ignored largely by the government’.
‘I’m already at The Lodge,’ he told the Canberra Times.
‘I have moved most of my personal effects from my flat in Canberra there across to The Lodge plus some things down from Sydney.’
Mr Albanese will still make trips to Sydney to visit his 21-year-old son Nathan.
The prime minister also indicated he plans to boost infrastructure spending in the nation’s capital and improve the public service.
