In its first year, the Whitlam Government passed 203 bills – more legislation than any other federal government had passed in a single year.
Armed with an ambitious agenda, Gough Whitlam and his government not only reformed Australia’s laws and institutions, but quickly changed the way Australia saw itself.
It was an extraordinary time.
Join two respected authors and journalists, Paul Kelly (Editor at Large, The Australian) and Troy Bramston (Journalist, author and Editor, The Whitlam Legacy), as they discuss Gough Whitlam, his government and how they changed Australia forever.
This event is presented by the Whitlam Institute within the University of Western Sydney and Riverside Theatres.
