If you’ve ever wanted to try on Bob Hawke’s iconic jacket he wore after our America’s Cup victory in 1983, you’ll be able to at a huge party commemorating 40 years since Australia II put Freo on the map.

On September 24, West Aussies have been invited to head down to Victoria Quay in Fremantle, where the port city will pay homage to the historic moment with a free concert featuring WA Eurovision entrant Voyager, the Baby Animals, headlined by the Hoodoo Gurus.

The WA Maritime Museum will have free entry to their “40 Years On” exhibition, which includes a cinematic recounting of the team’s victorious journey on an eight-metre curved screen, a replica of the America’s Cup and other memorabilia and of course the “Bob Hawke jacket” with replicas for the public to try on – I mean, you’d be a bum if you didn’t, right?

“The America’s Cup is the oldest trophy in international sport and Australia’s historic underdog victory 40 years ago broke the longest sporting winning streak on record,” the Premier said.

“This is a party you don’t want to miss.”
