Tony Abbott in Brisbane

Tony Abbott in Brisbane

Join Australia's 28th Prime Minister for an exclusive experience.

In the words of The Honourable Tony Abbott AC, 'The fact that we have the Crown means there is some part of our public life that is divorced from party politics. By becoming a republic, there will inevitably be more politics, not less, and I think we have quite enough politics already.'

You'll hear from Tony as he opens up about his time in office – a staunch monarchist surrounded by republicans – and dives deep into the decisions he took to best protect the Crown and Constitution against those seeking ultimate power for themselves. Tony also weighs in on the ambitions of today's prime minister to implement sweeping constitutional reform, be that a republic or the Voice to Parliament. You'll have an opportunity to ask related questions and tackle some of the country's greatest questions with a political and intellectual mind like no other. 

Situated in the heart of Brisbane in an historic precinct opposite Parliament House and the City Botanic Gardens, the Queensland Club is one of Australia's most iconic and prestigious venues, known especially for its beautiful furnishings, delicious menu and first-class wine list.
