Posted November 13, 2018 07:21:08 The Nike billboards in Australia are advertising the new Australian Prime Minister’s upcoming visit.
This will be the first visit by a prime minister to the country since Mr Abbott’s election in 2016.
Mr Turnbull has promised to promote “strong leadership” and is likely to be welcomed with open arms.
His visit to the Sunshine State has been billed as an opportunity for the nation to unite.
But the Prime Minister will not be attending any of the official events and will instead be staying in Sydney’s posh Marina Bay Sands Hotel for the first time.
In an interview with News.au this morning, Mr Turnbull said his plans were to visit the state for a two-day visit and the first in a year.
“I’ll be there at a certain point during the week and then a second week, so we’ll see how that goes,” he said.
“There are other people in the office who will be doing a lot of things, but I think the public will have to go to the state.”
He said he had been approached by a number of organisations to take part in his planned event.
The prime minister has also promised to visit his wife and two sons, aged eight and 10, during the visit.
“I’ve been asked by a couple of organisations in Australia, a number who I’ve spoken to, to come visit and make an official visit to my family and my family’s children, because they want to see a bit of Australia,” he explained.
“The other organisations have also been asked to make official visits to their families.”
“We have also had some people who want to visit me in my own home in Sydney,” he added.
