Julia Kenny

"We were friendly with Bob and Hazel Hawke"

Julia lived on a sugarcane farm with no electricity

Julia recalls her early life on a sugarcane farm in far north Queensland (FNQ). When she was young, life was utterly simple – there was no electricity and they rode horses to school.

She lived through The Depression and it taught her never to waste anything.

She met her husband on the cane farm. She remembers her wedding like it was yesterday. He was the love of her life and her stories about him are very moving.

They eventually travelled to Hobart, Tasmania.
