Tasmanian Government expresses its deepest sympathies to the family of Bob Hawke.

As Prime Minister, Mr. Hawke led our nation through a period of great change and accomplished much during his time in office.

Throughout his career in public life he was a colourful character and a masterful politician, and was widely admired and respected by Australians from all walks of life.

He was a great Australian.
