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.

HERITAGE ICONS FOR THE STATEWIDE REGISTER. SUGGESTIONS WELCOME FOR THE FRASER COAST QLD

Help preserve our heritage
The Council is preparing a Local Heritage Register listing places of heritage significance on the Fraser Coast, to comply with the Queensland Heritage Act 1992.

Everyone’s invited to a series of information sessions to determine the community’s views on its heritage and to help identify the social significance of sites to be recognised.

Properties currently identified under existing planning schemes or in previous studies will be assessed first.

The Council will contact owners of any places identified for inclusion.

For more information go to the Council’s website www.frasercoast.qld.gov.au or contact Council’s Senior Strategic Planner Jeff Brannan on 1300 79 49 29.
