Former Premier Jeff Kennett tells John Stanley he knew Dame Elisabeth all of his life, and says she was generous in her spirit:
Prime Minister Julia Gillard says Dame Elisabeth Murdoch was an amazing woman who set an example of kindness, humility and grace.
The celebrated philanthropist and media matriarch died in her Melbourne home overnight surrounded by her family, aged 103.
Ms Gillard says Dame Elisabeth lived a great Australian life and Australia's children and artists have lost one of their greatest benefactors.
Opposition Leader Tony Abbott says Australia has lost a remarkable character as well as an extraordinary philanthropist.
He says she was an inspiration to generations of Australians and a friend and supporter of many good causes in the community.
Both leaders have extended their sympathies to the Murdoch family.
