Yesterday's G'day LA event was attended by a range of Aussie export stars, US stars, and ministers and officials from the Australian tourism industry. Aussie stars included Rachel Griffiths, Eric Bana, Melissa George, Poppy Montgomery, Olivia Newton-John and her new husband.
Rachel Griffiths was presented with an award for excellence in film and television by her Brothers And Sisters co-star Sally Field. Eric Bana also received an award. Melissa George, previously an Aussie soap star, and now part of the the Grey's Anatomy cast, became a US citizen in recent times. Melissa was also seen in the 2005 remake of Amityville Horror.
