The National Press Club of Australia was established in 1962 by journalists, based in Canberra, to provide a genuine national forum for discussion of the issues of the day by the personalities who help shape them. Through the nationally televised National Press Club address, the Club has developed a reputation nationally and internationally as Australia's leading forum for the discussion of issues and debate on public policy in a lively, informative and entertaining format.
With a history spanning 50 years, the National Press Club of Australia is Australia's best known institution for informed discussion and debate. For people who shape Australian society, the National Press Club of Australia is Australia's most recognised vehicle, an icon chosen for major statements and for initiating change. Whether the issue of the day is political, economic, corporate, diplomatic, military or societal, the National Press Club plays a significant role in Australian Society.
