Henry George Address
Prosper Australia and the Victorian Georgist movement have proudly held an annual dinner to celebrate the teachings of Henry George since 1892. Around George’s birthday (2 September) we present a powerful presentation, dinner and discussion.
The annual commemorative address has been presented by a wide variety of speakers. These include Walter Burley Griffin, Saul Eslake, Nicole Gurran, Fred Harrison, Dr Jim Cairns, Reverend Tim Costello and EJ Craigie.
In 1910 gramophone recordings of Lloyd George and Winston Churchill’s ‘The People’s Budget’ were played. In 1911 a Single Tax Comedy Drama ‘The Story of my Dictatorship’ was performed at the Austral Salon. In 2020 and 2021, the event was moved online due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
