Oprah and Julia Gillard, Australia's first female Prime Minister, have a private conversation along the picturesque bank of the Yarra River.

"How exciting is it for you to be the first female prime minister of this country, or does that even register for you?" Oprah says.

"I don't get up and think, 'I'm a woman doing this job,'" Prime Minister Gillard says. "But if there's a girl in an Australian school who lifts her eyes that day and sees me, and says, 'I can do anything. I can grow up to be anything,' that's just so important."

Oprah wishes everyone a big Melbourne "G'day."

"I have to say, I've never seen a welcome like this in my life. Nothing like this in my life! I love the fact that you all have supported me and supported this show," Oprah says. "I was sorry to arrive in this country and hear about all of the devastation happening with the floods, but I know that you're open-hearted, big-hearted giving people, and you will look inside yourselves and where you can give back and where you can help and where you can be generous with those victims of the flood, you will do that."
