The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre and the Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Library at UniSA are proud to present this 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 is 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.
