Oprah wrapped up filming her two special Australian shows at the Opera House in Sydney on Tuesday (December 14).

Her special show featured appearances by Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Russell Crowe and Terri and Bindi Irwin, and a special performance by rockers Bon Jovi.

And her famous giveaways were definitely present, with those in attendance receiving pearl necklaces.

Oprah gave $250 000 to cancer sufferer Kristian Anderson and his wife, telling them to take a year off and enjoy their lives.

And the students at Canterbury Boys School had a surprise visit from Jay-Z, with Oprah giving the school $1 million worth of laptops and an upgrade to their music facilities.

But this wasn’t all Oprah had in store — she had a second show to film!

And it wasn’t off to the best of starts, with Hugh Jackman injuring himself when he entered Oprah’s stage via a flying fox. The big screen hunk hurt his eye in the incident, but was well enough to chat to Oprah not long after.

Hugh later managed to get Oprah to try some Vegemite, and Oprah declared, “I like it!”

U2 frontman Bono also made an appearance, and Oprah continued her trend of massive giveaways by giving the crowd diamond necklaces.
