2011 Inaugural Gough Whitlam Oration

31 March 2011

Prime Minister the Hon Julia Gillard delivered the inaugural Gough Whitlam Oration.

This major national address titled Walking the Reform Road was a sellout event and re-broadcast nationally by the ABC.

"I am absolutely clear what Labor stands for, what we aspire to achieve, what our culture is and our role as a party of government... We have always understood that we must be the interpreters of the future to the present and must shape the future so it is one of fairness."
