The National Press Club of Australia is very proud of its heritage. Over the years the Club has hosted Addresses from a vast array of visiting international figures, Heads of State, Religious leaders, innovators and political leaders, including every Prime Minister/Opposition Leader every year over the past 40 years.

From the first address from Chief Justice and External Affairs Minister Sir Garfield Barwick on 17 May 1963 held at the then Hotel Canberra, right through to present day addresses held in our state of the art television studio, our speaker archive is available for download by decade to the right.
