Solo event,

Australia’s suburban dream. Is it game over?

Date: 3pm - 3.50pm | Sunday 15 July 2018

Venue: Allan Scott Auditorium

In 1963, Donald Horne dubbed Australia ‘the first suburban nation’. Now, demographic change, suburban sprawl, soaring house prices and the tyranny of the long commute have taken some of the gloss off that ideal. How did we get to this point? And what is the future of the suburban dream?
