It's Time (and Time Again): Elections that made history, a free talk by Assoc Prof Martin Drum

When Gough Whitlam persuaded Australians in 1972 that it was time for a change, he ushered in the modern age of political campaigning. Labor strategist, Bruce Hawker, has since suggested that the Whitlam campaign “became the gold mark for future successful elections. Perhaps it was the high water mark, too.”  There is little doubt that Australian history has been shaped by powerful and dramatic electoral moments.  This is a fantastic opportunity to hear Martin Drum, Notre Dame’s well-known political analyst, explore those elections that made history.

Wildlife Zoo at the Markets

We love having West Oz Wildlife, one of Perth’s leading wildlife petting zoos, at Fremantle Markets. They provide a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with native Australian animals such as koalas, snakes & dingoes. You can usually only glimpse such animals amidst big crowds in larger reserves or zoos. Our Wildlife Zoo offers a more intimate approach, allowing both children and adults to experience these animals in a smaller and more relaxed setting. Entry by Gold Coin Donation. Don't forget your camera!
