Top 10 Prime Ministers of Australia

The Top Ten
1 Bob Hawke

"He was in office for 3206 days. He restructured Medicare. He passed over 83 pieces of important legislation. He floated the Australian dollar and opened up the economy."

He was fantastic economically and he reintroduced Medicare. The man was amazing and completely deserving of number 1

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

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

2 John Curtin

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

Great war time leader, although the stress killed him.

3 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.

He was in office for only a few years but in those short years he was incredible!

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

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 Kevin Rudd

If K Rudd runs his campaign again now, he would have won a lot of votes from the younger generation. A true Australian PM we deserve.

The only reason K Rudd got australia through the GFC was because he had billions at his disposal thanks to the previous liberal gov't. He also sucked up to China who have thanked us by sanctioning the crap out of our exports.

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

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.

6 Ben Chifley

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

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.

A great economic manager and a spectacular debater!

8 Alfred Deakin
9 Robert Menzies

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

During a long time in office, I would expect him to change lots and also, schools to be built when he was still pm!

10 Malcolm Fraser
The Contenders
11 Anthony Albanese

He is trying to get the Aboriginal Voice to parliament, he is go very well for his first few years, he is trying to get aboriginal people to get more voice.

I wonder how he will go...

12 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

13 Andrew Fisher
14 Malcolm Turnbull
15 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

16 Joseph Lyons
17 Edmund Barton
18 William McMahon
19 John Gorton
20 Billy Hughes
21 James Scullin

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

22 Frank Forde
23 Chris Watson
24 Harold Holt
25 John McEwen
