President Obama In Australia, Day 1

President Obama's schedule for his first full day in Australia included a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Julia Gillard, a joint press conference and a lavish "Parliamentary Dinner," held at Parliament House Canberra.

After an arrival ceremony, President Obama wrote in Gillard's guest book:

"To the People of Australia, with whom we have stood together for a century of progress and sacrifice. On this 60th Anniversary of our Alliance, we resolve that our bonds will never be broken, and our friendship will last for all time."
