Welcome to the Kids'
Page on the
Australia is a very special place. Australians enjoy a wonderful climate, beautiful scenery, unique wildlife and democratic institutions that are the envy of the rest of the world.
But one of the best things about Australia is its people. It is for them that I work hard every day.
As I move around Australia I am often surprised not only about the number of questions that young people have about politics but also their knowledge and interest in it.
I believe that it is very important that young people have the opportunity to learn about their politicians and about how our political system works.
It is a vital part of protecting our democratic system which ensures that Australians have a real say about how they are governed.
One of the great things about the Internet is that it enables people to communicate more easily with each other and to gain knowledge that may not otherwise be available to them.
If you have a few moments, why not try the Kids' Page Quiz - all the answers can be found on the Prime Ministers Homepage and there is a certificate to be won if you answer all the questions.
There are many interesting things to be found on this homepage. A good place to start is the PM at Home section.
