The Nationals Centenary in 2020

As the second oldest political party in Australia, The Nationals will be celebrating its Centenary on 22 January 2020.

This is a unique opportunity to recognise and reflect on the great history of Australian democracy.

On Friday 13 March 2020 at 2.30pm in Melbourne, where it all began for The Nationals, we conducted a Historical Re-Enactment Ceremony at the Parliament of Victoria. This was followed by a Centenary Gala Dinner at the Park Hyatt. Melbourne.
