  • Australia mourns the passing of Shimon Peres, his life was as eventful as it was long: his passion for the State of Israel, which he helped found, as strong as his commitment to peace.

  • I have requested that His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia, represent Australia and Australians at the funeral service of Shimon Peres.

  • Farewell to Tangles. Max Walker was one of Australia’s great cricketers - but he was much more than a cricketer: footballer, architect, commentator, story-teller and, above all, great Aussie character.

  • Australia mourns the passing of Shimon Peres - nation builder and peacemaker.
