Fri 3 Mar, 3pm - 4pm

Australian republic vs monarchy debate

Where: Main stage, University Lawns


Is it fair that an Australian will never be Australia’s Head of State? Is the best system of government one where the Head of State is born overseas and only eligible due to birth rather than merit? The Australian Republic Society, in conjunction with the Politics Society, is putting these questions to the test as 3 Australian Republicans go head-to-head with 3 Monarchists on the O-Week Main Stage. Come along to fight for your beliefs, learn about what this Republic business is all about or just watch 6 passionate debaters engage in lively discourse.

Hosted by the Australian Republican Society.
