Rolling Into the World

Written by Eoin Cameron


Packed with childhood adventures that are sometimes hilarious, sometimes terrible, Rolling Into the World begins with ABC broadcaster and former Federal MP Eoin Cameron’s birth on the slopes of the volcanic crater of Mount Gambier. From riding on the lino polisher to homemade rocket launches, from Actavite to Biggles, his experiences growing up in a constantly expanding Catholic family during the 1950s and 60s make a terrific read.

He worked as a farm labourer and roustabout in shearing teams in the Great Southern; did a stint in a salmon fishing team at Parry’s Inlet and tried (unsuccessfully) to sell used cars in Albany. At eighteen he jagged a job as an announcer at Radio 6VA in Albany, where he met his wife Wendy. They moved to Perth in the seventies, then Melbourne, then Perth again, to pursue his broadcasting career. In the nineties Eoin was elected the Federal Member for Stirling and served two terms in Canberra. He later started working as a breakfast presenter on ABC Local Radio in Perth. Eoin Cameron died in 2017. Read more
