Hazel McKellar

Sent out to work at 11, married at 16, a mother at 17 and on the track as a drover's wife, Hazel McKellar soon became a drover herself in charge of 5,000 head of cattle. After the Cunnumulla 'riot' she became a consultant and sat on a number of committees and co-operatives fighting for equality and social justice for Indigenous people. In 1981, Hazel won the Woman of the Year Award. Kerry McCallum listened and typed out Hazel's story. The resulting book is Woman From No Where.
