The visit comes after a series of high-level engagements and an exchange of ministerial visits between the two sides in 2022 and in 2023.

Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese on Wednesday visited the Sabarmati Ashram, a place closely associated with Mahatma Gandhi, after arriving in Ahmedabad on his first India visit. He landed at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Airport in the city and headed straight to the Ashram, the former home of Mahatma Gandhi and a place linked with India's freedom struggle.

The Australian leader will attend a Holi programme at Raj Bhavan later in the evening, as per schedule shared by authorities.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will arrive here at around 8 pm. Both the prime ministers will watch the first day of the fourth cricket Test match between India and Australia beginning at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Thursday.

The visit comes after a series of high-level engagements and an exchange of ministerial visits between the two sides in 2022 and in 2023. The last visit by an Australian PM (Malcolm Turnbull) to India was in 2017.
