2021 EXHIBITIONS

ADVANCING AUSTRALIA FAIR
BOB HAWKE AND HIS GOVERNMENT, 1983-1991
PERMANENT EXHIBITION

Advancing Australia Fair Exhibition

An informative exhibition tracking the paradigm shift in Australian values, policies, and international relations pursued by the Hawke government. From educational access, to Aboriginal advancement, to anti-sex discrimination, to Medicare, to the saving of the Franklin River and Kakadu, to the lifting of trade barriers and the vital furthering of the China relationship, the re-shaping of Australia is embedded in the history of this government.

The special connection to our State lies in the fact that Bob Hawke was the only Prime Minister to have been born in South Australia, and the exhibition content has drawn upon the expertise and collections of the Hawke Library in Adelaide.

Showing from 13 January until 30 April 2021, the exhibition also includes an exploration of Australia's industrial relations from the colonial period to the present day, with a focus on Hawke’s impact on industrial relations in Australia through his work at the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) and as Prime Minister of Australia.
