Mr Hawke led the country and his party from 1983 to 1991, and his contribution to public life helped shape modern Australia.

He won four federal elections, making him Labor's longest-serving prime minister and Australia's third-longest-serving prime minister behind Robert Menzies and John Howard.

Mr Hawke is survived by his wife and biographer Blanche d'Alpuget, and his three children — Susan, Stephen and Rosslyn.

Ms d'Alpuget released a statement saying "he died peacefully at home" and that his children, stepson Louis, and his grandchildren would hold a private funeral ahead of a memorial service in Sydney in the coming weeks.

"Bob was dearly loved by his family, and so many friends and colleagues," the statement read.
