We’re celebrating an incredible 40 years with you, Melbourne. It all started when we played George Benson’s ‘Breezin’ on a Sunday afternoon in 1980, giving away millions of dollars over the years and then all the way to being in lockdown together. It’s an incredible achievement and we wanted to celebrate by taking a look at what it was like in 2003.

Back in 2003, our Premier was Steve Bracks.
