After a Public Opinon poll in 1974, the then Prime Minister, Gough Whitlam, announced that "Advance Australia Fair" would be Australia's new National Anthem, the tune suggested and favoured by his wife Margaret. This change was short-lived and we returned to "God Save the Queen". A further National Poll in 1977 chose "Advance Australia Fair" as the new National Anthem again, with 2.9 million votes. Finally, "Advance Australia Fair" was proclaimed as the new Australian National Anthem on the 19th of April, 1984.

How was the Australian national anthem chosen?
In 1973 the then Prime Minister, Gough Whitlam wanted a new national anthem instead of "God Save the Queen" and a competition was held. None of the new entries was considered worthy enough, so the existing songs "Advance Australia Fair", "Waltzing Matilda" and "Song of Australia" were proposed. A 1974 national poll found that "Advance Australia Fair" was the most popular choice. In 1977 the Fraser government held a referendum and attached a national plebiscite to choose the National song. "Advance Australia Fair" won with 43%, "Waltzing Matilda" with 28% and "Song of Australia" with 10%, keeping "God Save the Queen" had 19%. Finally in 1984 the Hawke government adopted "Advance Australia Fair" as the national anthem.
