At 21 years of age, Edith Weidenhofer left Adelaide in November of 1925 to travel by train and truck to Durham Downs – a distance of about 1200km - to take up a position as governess, looking after my father and his two siblings. After several days travel she arrived in Tibooburra where she was met by Doug McFarlane who was to accompany her for the balance of her journey, not only to Durham Downs, but also through an amazing life they were to spend together.
