Sir Robert Menzies in his own words

Robert Menzies: A Life of Liberalism - A Documentary

The Menzies Research Centre has produced a new documentary on the life of Sir Robert Menzies. The thirteen minute film tells the story of how a man from a small country town, through his own hard work and effort, rose to become Australia’s longest serving Prime Minister. It also details how Menzies’ liberal philosophy laid the foundations for Australia’s post-war economic prosperity and social policy success. Menzies never forgot that an Australian government’s primary purpose is to create economic and social conditions to allow families and small businesses to prosper.
