Early Lives

From Edmund Barton to Julia Gillard, this trail introduces you to Australia’s prime ministers and some of the places and events associated with their early lives. They include birthplaces and family homes, from humble dwellings to wealthy manors, showing something of their circumstances and the environments that shaped their early ideas and characters. Some places are well-known, and a few are open to the public. Others are shown here for the first time.
