Red face ceiling light

Hi,
I brought 3 ceiling light and tried to change it myself. I removed the old one and remove the batten holder. I found two wires. One is black and other one is white. Blue and brown from the ceiling light. I connected blue to black and brown to white. It works now.

When I tried to removed the the batten holder in my dining room, I found 4 wires connected to the batten holder. Black and red in one set and white and red in other set. They all connect to the batten holder. Which wire I should connect to my blue and brown?

Please help.

Looks like what I would call a socket for a bayonet-type lamp. Now that I realize this inquiry is from Oz, I think I better bow out and leave it for folks more familiar with Aussie wiring.
