Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Melbourne on Tuesday on the fourth and final leg of his four-city tour of Australia.

He arrived in Melbourne after a hectic morning in Canberra, where he held bilateral talks with his Australian counterpart Tony Abbott and then addressed the Australian Parliament, the first Indian Prime Minister to do so.

Mr. Abbott will host a reception for his Indian counterpart at the iconic 161-year-old Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) later in the evening.

Mr. Modi will leave for Fiji in the night for a day-long visit to conclude his 10-day three-nation tour.
