Australia's affair with Eurovision

In this month's 'Did you know?' community talk, Dr Jess Carniel will explore Australia's affair with the Eurovision Song Contest. Australia is geographically very distant from Europe, but is only the second country outside Eurasia to compete in the Eurovision Song Content. What is it about this glamorous rock competition on the other side of the world that has Australians captivated, even obsessed?
