The somber scenes at Kirribilli were in contrast to Sunday when Mr Morrison let loose for one final party to say thank you to their staff and families.

At one point in the festivities, he cracked a whip to amuse guests as his wife of over 30 years delivered a tray of cocktails to the surprisingly jovial crowd. 

Mrs Morrison decided to give it a go too, grabbing the leather strap and swiveling it above her head then lashing the ground before the couple’s eldest daughter Abbey also had a crack.

At another point in the event, Mr Morrison could be seen sharing an intimate moment with his wife, pulling her in for a hug as she drank a margarita.

The Morrison family will have to move out of Kirribilli to make way for Mr Albanese, who is expected to live there with long-term girlfriend Jodie Haydon, his son Nathan from a previous marriage, and ‘First Dog’ Toto. 

He has a little more time that usual as Mr Albanese few to the Quad meeting in Japan on Monday almost immediately after being sworn in that morning, and will not return until Wednesday afternoon.

What Mr Morrison will do next is yet to be decided, but in his concession speech at Sydney’s Fullerton Hotel on Saturday night, he confirmed he was stepping down as leader.

But he vowed to stay on in Parliament to serve his South Sydney constituents, an unusual move for a prime minister ousted from office by voters.

‘The people of Cook have supported me so strongly and I will continue to be your representative,’ he said.

What’s not clear yet is if Mr Morrison will look for a role on the new Liberal leader’s front bench as a shadow minister, or if he will move to the back benches.

Alternatively, he may later reconsider his decision to stay on in Canberra and instead quit to spend more time with Jenny and their girls, Abbey and Lily.

Veteran political broadcaster Barrie Cassidy predicted Mr Morrison will stay on in Parliament, with the intent to cause chaos by sniping from the sidelines.
