Top 10 Australian Prime Ministers


The Top Ten

1 John Howard

We had a lot of money in the bank with him and only 70 illegal immigrants passed by in 12 years in charge and with Kevin Rudd it was 1000 a month. - roblist

Paul keating once said that Australia never had a Great leader... John Howard was and is still a The Greatest leader.

John Howard was the second longest serving prime minister in Australia's history.

One of the worst in my lifetime. Sorry. - truckturner

said sorry to the aboriginals - munkee_linc97

Australia was unaffected by the Great Recession when He was in office.

Saw everyone as an equal

First prime minister to do something about the climate (solar panel credits, more renewables and tried to introduce an emissions trading scheme)

3 Gough Whitlam

This guy made Australia, I'd give Rudd a lot of points, Howard is terrible and you can't argue that considering his economic sucess was because of Chinas need for Metals and we lost all the profit in like 2 years and no infrastructure was built. If you argue that and you are from west Sydney if it wasn't for Whitlam you would still be using outhouses.

Because he created modern day Australia

the first to get the sack - munkee_linc97

4 Bob Hawke

Shocked Hawkie isn't higher. Like, what the hell? - truckturner

Introduced medicare

sick lad

Made more growth in Australia than any other P. M

5 John Curtin

"Australia looks to America"

6 Malcolm Fraser
7 Paul Keating

Best one liners ever

Visionary. Transformative. Courageous. Easily the greatest of all time. I read a quote once - “Australia was ready for Keating, Australians were not.” They are now. His vision was and remains spot on.

8 Ben Chifley
9 Julia Gillard

Was kicked out too quickly because she made it heard for business to be greedy, carbon happy, morons

Overrated - micahisthebest

Steady hand

10 Robert Menzies

Surprised this guy isn't higher. He was the longest-serving and changed Australia forever - micahisthebest

The Contenders

11 Alfred Deakin
12 Edmund Barton
13 Joseph Lyons
14 William McMahon

Hollywood actor "Julian McMahon's" father - munkee_linc97

15 Tony Abbott Tony Abbott Anthony John "Tony" Abbott is an Australian politician who was the 28th Prime Minister of Australia, from 18 September 2013 to 15 September 2015. Abbott was leader of the Liberal Party from 2009 to 2015, and has been a member of parliament for Warringah since 1994.

Should be at the bottom of this list or better still, not on it.

Even though he's basically at meme to many people, he is my favourite prime minister and did very well for Australia

He is nice


16 Malcolm Turnbull
