Former Liberal leader Andrew Peacock has died in the United States aged 82.
Dubbed the “colt from Kooyong”, Mr Peacock served as foreign minister from 1975-1980 under Malcolm Fraser.
As leader of the Liberal party, he was defeated by Bob Hawke in the 1984 and 1990 elections.
In a tribute on social media, his daughter Ann Peacock said she was devastated.
“To my beautiful, loving, most caring, thoughtful, generous and brilliant father, you will be so greatly missed, your guidance and deep love for us will live in my heart, we are absolutely devastated.
“Daddy, love you more than the world, please continue to look after us all. You will live within us forever and ever.”
