The Rolling Stones visited Australia six months after the Beatles and were soon rewarded with their first number one hit in Australia. Oddly enough, it was an Oz-only release of the Drifter's number one US song Under the Boardwalk. Jagger's huge 1965 international hits like (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction passed Australia by, as local hero Normie Rowe topped the charts with a 1956 Doris Day song, Que Sera Sera.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
