Grace Tame has certainly showed how happy she is to be taking photos with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

Last year's Australian of the Year winner was invited to Canberra to hand over her title to the 2022 recipient.

She got to meet some of the candidates for the incredible honour today at The Lodge during morning tea and was asked to have photo with Australia's leader.

Video footage posted by SBS shows the sexual assault survivor be called over by Scott and Jenny Morrison, before she promptly shakes their hands and stands beside them for the happy snap.

But Tame's face dived head-first into the phrase 'if looks could kill' as she stood there without even a smirk.

People on social media went wild for the look and said she was a legend for not putting on a fake smile.

One user wrote: "You are the gutsiest, most authentic, and truly congruent public figure ever! Thank you for everything this past year @TamePunk, and for finishing in such an appropriate manner."

Another added: "Why even shake his hand, then. Honestly, power to her for not giving him a photo op but I'd definitely have just refused to shake his hand."

While there were some people who criticised her for being disrespectful to the Prime Minister, others clapped back that the federal government hasn't exactly been great to Grace.

Despite being a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, the Australian of the Year wasn't involved in helping the Morrison administration with crafting its strategy to prevent child sex abuse.

After she discovered this fairly significant snub, she wrote on Twitter: "Surely we the people deserve politicians who are above gaslighting victim-survivors?"

She also fired off this savage tweet in September last year to drive home her message.

"Scott has just finished his opening keynote address at the Women's Safety Summit in which he appropriated private disclosures from survivors to leverage his own image," she said.

Grace Tame ripped into Scott Morrison when he revealed it was his wife Jenny that encouraged him to look into the allegations of sexual assault inside Parliament House.

"It shouldn't take having children to have a conscience," she said. "And actually, on top of that, having children doesn't guarantee a conscience."

With just one day left as Australian of the Year, it' clear Grace wanted to go out with a bang.
