OPPY: THE LIFE OF SIR HUBERT OPPERMAN
by Daniel Oakman
Sir Hubert ‘Oppy’ Opperman was a sporting icon, a cycling phenomenon whose epic feats of endurance captivated the world. But Oppy was more than just a champion. During the Great Depression, he became a transcendent symbol of Australian fortitude. He became a politician, a household name and a legend—as popular as cricketer Don Bradman and the racehorse Phar Lap.
Join author Daniel Oakman, curator Dr Susannah Helman, cycling advocate Stephen Hodge and historian Ian Hancock for the launch of this intimate portrait of an extraordinary Australian.
