Who is Bob Hawke? / Facts

  • After graduating from the University of Oxford in 1956, Hawke was allowed to join the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) as a research officer
  • Having risen to become responsible for wage arbitration, he was elected President of the ACTU in 1969, where he achieved an unprecedented level of popularity
  • After a decade as ACTU President, Hawke announced his intention to enter politics, and was immediately elected to the House of Representatives as the Labor MP for Wills
  • Three years later, he led Labor to a landslide election victory at the 1983 election and was sworn in as Prime Minister
  • He led Labor to victory at three more elections in 1984, 1987 and 1990, thus making him the most electorally successful Labor Leader in history
  • The Hawke Government created Medicare and Landcare, brokered the Prices and Incomes Accord, formed APEC, floated the Australian dollar, deregulated the financial sector, introduced the Family Assistance Scheme, announced "Advance Australia Fair" as the official national anthem and initiated superannuation pension schemes for all workers
  • Hawke was eventually replaced by Paul Keating at the end of 1991, who would go on to deliver the Labor government a record fifth consecutive victory and a record 13 years in government at the 1993 election
  • He remains to date Labor's longest-serving Prime Minister, Australia's third-longest-serving Prime Minister, and is currently the oldest living former Prime Minister
  • To date, he is the only Australian Prime Minister to be born in South Australia


  • University College, Oxford
  • University of Western Australia
  • Australian National University
  • Oxford University
  • Perth Modern School


  • I think it is just stupid economics for a government to approach economic management from a strand of thinking regarding unions as enemies.
  • The things which are most important don't always scream the loudest.
