This is a significant moment for Australia as we remember Gough Whitlam and his momentous contribution to our nation. He was Prime Minister for only three years but he swept all before him. We all mourn his passing and celebrate his great life.
He was a larger than life figure whose leadership profoundly changed the nation for the better, forever.
Mr Whitlam made us a progressive nation and put us on the global map. After decades of conservative government, in came Gough.
