After three long months of campaigning from both sides, the Australian Marriage Survey has come back as a resounding yes.

61.6% of Australians voted yes, whilst the no vote came in at 38.4%. Parties broke out across the nation, and longtime marriage equality advocate Rodney Croome is one of many celebrating.

Mr Croome speaks with Brian Carlton about the outcome, saying that he is proud to be Tasmanian today. He says he now expects Parliament to get on with job with the same-sex marriage legislation.
