The Third Ray Evans Memorial Oration

  • Red Emperor Chinese Restaurant M10/3 Southgate Ave Southbank VIC 3006 Australia (map)

The late Ray Evans was a giant of Australian politics, whose passionate zeal transformed centre-right politics, and who was an inspiration and mentor to countless individuals over the years. The Australian Taxpayers’ Alliance invite you to commemorate Ray and his legacy for the 3rd Ray Evans Memorial Oration. The venue shall once again be one of Ray’s favourite Restaurants - the Red Emperor Chinese Restaurant in Southbank and will include a delicious banquet meal and 3-hour drinks package. Senator Amanda Stoker will be joining us this year to deliver the 3rd Annual Oration. Senator Stoker is motivated by the desire to see Australia return to being a country of opportunity based on centre-right values and is a huge admirer and supporter of Ray and his legacy.

A founding member of the HR Nicholls Society, the Bennalong Society, The Samuel Griffiths Society, the Galatians Group, and the Lavoisier Group,  all of which he was either President or Treasurer of, Rays contribution to Australian politics can not be overstated. Andrew Bolt noted he was "one of the country's leading conservative intellectuals...tireless in advancing freedom and reason against all modern collectivist myths and New Age dreamings".

Through the establishment of this annual oration, Ray’s vision for a more free and prosperous Australia lives on.
