Western Australia to make Bob Hawke’s childhood home a heritage site

The childhood home of Bob Hawke, Australia’s longest serving Labor prime minister, is set to be preserved by the Western Australian government.

Premier Mark McGowan announced the property, purchased for $1.43 million, will be owned and maintained as a heritage site.

“It is both momentous and humbling to be able to secure public ownership of this landmark in our state’s history,” he said.
