Michelle Obama was photographed looking less than enthused as she accompanied her husband on a speaking tour in Australia Monday.

The former first couple touched down in Sydney on a private jet Sunday night before eating lunch at an upscale harborside seafood restaurant Monday, The Daily Mail reported.

As Barack Obama, 61, appeared to revel at working a crowd of adoring Aussie onlookers, shutterbugs caught Michelle, 59, crossing her arms with a sourpuss expression on full display following the couple’s private meal at the Bathers’ Pavilion, which offers a six-course tasting menu with wine pairings for $200.

The Obamas also reportedly met with Prime Minister Anthony Albanese Monday and were greeted by US ambassador Caroline Kennedy, who served as a diplomat in Japan under the Obama administration.

The trip comes as the former president is slated to speak at a Sydney theater Tuesday ahead of a speaking engagement in Melbourne on Wednesday.

Tickets for the events reportedly started at $195 but were fetching about double that sum on resale brokers’ websites Monday.

Michelle’s moment of disinterest came months after she admitted she “couldn’t stand” her ambitious husband for about a decade of their 30-year marriage.

The Air Force One-less couple’s choice of transport was panned by media personalities Down Under, who noted that private jets flew in the face of their commitment to promoting conservationist environmental policies.

The Australian visit reportedly marked Barack and Michelle’s first public appearance together in five months.
