A great night was had by all. Kylie Minogue and movie director Philip Noyce (The Quiet American, Patriot Games, Clear & Present Danger, Dead Calm, Rabbit Proof Fence…) were honoured for services to their professions. Entertainment from Olivia Newton-John was great witha flashback to Grease with John Travolta in the room.
Before dinner I managed to end up with an extra glass of champagne (common Australian problem) so gave offered it up to a lass we had just met. In a stroke of good fortune her table (which happened to be next to ours) won bottles of Penfold’s very famous Grange Hermitage. Proving that Karma is real, she swung by and let me have her glass…tasted like heaven!
