The Walkley Foundation has celebrated and supported great Australian journalism since the first Walkley Awards, established by Sir William Gaston Walkley, were handed out in 1956.
In 2018, the Walkley Foundation received another generous bequest from the Walkley family. This time from June Andrews, William Walkley’s sister in law. The bequest continues the legacy of excellence in Australian journalism.
