He won the first running of the George Main Stakes as a group 1 race. 

Would it be fair to assume he was the first group 1 winner in Australia ?

Imposing won the Epsom a few days before he won the George Main in 1979, Djebel, but Kingston Town won the Spring Champion, the race run before Imposing's Epsom, so maybe and fittingly, Kingston Town is the first G1 winner?

Private Talk won the Marlboro Cup (= Sir Rupert Clarkes Stakes etc) on Show Day in Melbourne late September 1979, so maybe he was the first.

The Marlboro Cup in 1979 was R5 but the Underwood Stakes was R4 so Valley of Georgia may have the honour.
