Farewell, Moonface.

The State Funeral for Aussies beloved entertainment icon and absolute legend, Bert Newton will be held tomorrow, November 12th, at Melbourne’s St Patrick’s Cathedral. 

Bert sadly passed away on October 30 at the age of 83 after a long battle with his health, with the last photo posted to his socials featuring the loves of his life (besides Patti of course)... his adoring Grandchildren.

Thank you for the warmth, laughter, and song, Bert. Rest easy. xx
