Port Lincoln Times Flashback Friday 1978 | GALLERY

It is time for our weekly Flashback Friday as we visit editions of the Port Lincoln Times from the past.

This week we go back 40 years to 1978 to see who was making the pages of the Port Lincoln Times between the months of July and December.

In 1978 Malcolm Fraser was the Prime Minister and Don Dunstan was Premier of South Australia.

In sport Hawthorn won the 1978 premiership against North Melbourne by 18 points while it was a closer result in the SANFL grand final as Norwood defeated Sturt by one point.

This was also the year the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras began, the first took place on June 24.

The biggest hit song in Australia for 1978 was ‘You’re the One That I Want’ by Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta.
