Geraldine Byrne

A granddaughter of one of the original overlanders who drove cattle from New South Wales to the Kimberley, Geraldine Byrne was born in Fremantle and grew up in the Goldfields and Wheat belt districts of Western Australia. As a child she heard stories of the Kimberley from her father, and came to develop a keen interest in the region; later strengthened by the friendship of Dame Mary Durack with whom she travelled there many times. After a variety of appointments, including the Australian Studies Centre at the University of London, the Law Society of Western Australia, and the University of Notre Dame, in the mid 1990s Geraldine completed an MA majoring in history and became a full-time historian.
