Photo Flash: Hugh Jackman Celebrates Australia Day at Refinery Rooftop

Sunday night, Hugh Jackman celebrated Australia Day with his wife Deborra-Lee Furness and his children, Oscar and Ava at Refinery Rooftop. Jackman gave a speech about his Australian pride with the rooftop view of the Empire State Building illuminated with Australia's colors directly behind him. He then gave a surprise performance of "I Still Call Australia Home" by Peter Allen - who Jackson played in his Tony Award-winning performance in The Boy from Oz on Broadway. Check out a look back below!

Ivanka Trump was also in attendance, along with Australian Consulate-General to New York Richard Leather, Qantas Senior Executive Vice President of the Americas Vanessa Hudson, and Robert Thomson - an Australian journalist and the Chief Executive of News Corp. The event was sponsored by Qantas Airlines and food was provided by Australian celebrity chef, Neil Perry.
