The debates begin!

On this day a Monument was dedicated to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the State of Victoria with a variety of special events.

It was seven days to go until 'The Great Debate' was to be held that preceded the Federal Election of December 1st, 1984. Labor Prime Minister Bob Hawke and Liberal Opposition Leader Andrew Peacock were the protagonists.
