Before meeting with Turnbull in Sydney on Monday, Biden will head to Melbourne.

There he will visit the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre to promote US-Australia cancer research cooperation and the Boeing’s factory at Melbourne’s Fishermans Bend to see its contribution to the 787 Dreamliner project.
