Top 10 Prime Ministers of Australia

The Top Ten
1 Bob Hawke

He helped the indigenous people, which was very nice of him.

R.I.P, you bloody legend! Enjoy all the beers in heaven!

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

Keating and Hawke were the dream team.

2 Gough Whitlam

While born into a well-off household, he pleaded the case of the poor and made our country more fair to the poorest among us. It seems fitting that the man that gave us the first Australian universal healthcare system should live a longer life than any other prime minister we have yet had. It is a true pity that he left office in such a way.

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.

Awesome PM, lots of places named in his honour. Screw John Kerr!

3 Kevin Rudd

Australia's coolest PM. He's not afraid too speak the truth. I wish we had his version of the NBN instead of Malcom's Libtard NBN.

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)

4 John Howard

The former Prime Minister John Howard made the Commonwealth of Australia Great again. During his term as Prime Minister, The economy In Australia grew and became strong again. The treasure of the Crown in Australia was able to pay off government debt completely. Australians income has improved. Unemployment rate dropped down to 4.1%.
No doubt, His Honorable former Prime Minister is one of the best who served this great nation.

John Howard was a war monger and U.S puppet to President George Bush because he supported the war in Iraq by sending Australian Troops to handle the ordeal. He was also anti-immigration where he made many negative sentiments on foreigners. However the only good thing he achieved in his term in office was to ban firearms after the deaths of many people in Port Arthur.

Gillard and Rudd? Those two are jokers. This man, with Costello and a few others is responsible for Australia having a great financial standard until the labours spent it. Gillard and Rudd are the two biggest fools of modern Australian politics. This man is one of the genuises.

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.

5 John Curtin

A wartime PM faced with invasion who made it clear that our future security was linked to the USA, not the UK.

6 Malcolm Fraser
7 Paul Keating

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.

Visionary and contemporary. On indigenous affairs and our place in the Asia Pacific, he was and is without peer,

He's Bob Hawkes right hand man. Awesome public speaker.

Best one liners ever

8 Ben Chifley

Funny How Majority of our best Prime Ministers are from Labor. But Liberal has been in office longer.

9 Julia Gillard

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

She was a good Prime Minister, she was just fighting an uphill battle

10 Alfred Deakin
The Contenders
11 Robert Menzies

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

12 Joseph Lyons
13 Malcolm Turnbull
14 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

15 Scott Morrison
16 Edmund Barton
17 William McMahon
18 John Gorton
19 Andrew Fisher
20 Frank Forde
21 Billy Hughes
22 James Scullin

PM at the worst time . Depression & 29% unemployment. Didn't even own a house to he was 63.

23 Harold Holt
24 Chris Watson
25 George Reid
