One-year-old Zoe Jamieson travelled with mum Teresse Kilpatrick and granddad Wayne Kilpatrick from Townsville to Howard for a reunion.

It was the first time Zoe had met her great-great grandmother.

Her great-grandmother Rhonda Kilpatrick joined the group at Mrs DeWinter’s Howard home to round out the five generations.

Each of the five are also the first-born in their family.

Wayne said they had not been able to be together in one place for several years.

Ms DeWinter said members of her family were now scattered across Australia after first arriving by boat in 1952.

She said it was incredible for her to think of five generations in Australia after so many decades.

“For me, Australia has been my home,” she said.
