The White Russians

Before the war Katherine became the Territory’s centre for peanut farming and many of the farmers who took up the land came from Europe. Katherine became the unlikely place for a thriving community of Russian émigrés with names such as: Ivinetz, Fomin, Tokmakoff, Zoyef, Krilov, Kastianoffs, Tarnahoffs, Stovolia, de Julia and others. A greater contrast to northern Europe could hardly be imagined.

Erina Tokmakoff-Hill, who grew up in the Russian community of Katherine described how they kept the old traditions.
