Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday concluded his Australia visit, closing a long gap of 28 years since an Indian Prime Minister last visited the nation Down Under.

In his four-city tour, Modi first visited Brisbane for the two-day G20 summit, where he pushed for the repatriation of black money, among other issues. He also engaged in bilateral talks with several world leaders, and was crowned the 'most popular figure' at the summit by the media. 

Modi then moved to Sydney, where he addressed the Indian diaspora at the Allphones Arena on Monday. More than 16,000 people attended his address, with several even boarding the special 'Modi Express' from Melbourne to be part of the event. 

On Tuesday, the Indian Prime Minister made a historic address at the Australian Parliament in Canberra, the first for an Indian leader, and also signed key pacts with Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott. 

On the final leg of his trip, Modi visited Melbourne where he interacted with the country's top businessmen and was given a grand reception at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground. Here, Abbott and Modi posed with the cricket World Cup 2015 trophy.
