Liz Barry is now a fair dinkum Aussie and like her partner David, has a certificate to prove it. Cox Council president Denise Arratta performed the ceremony last month in front of a large group of friends and well-wishers. Liz, who claims to have been a proud Australian for years, was clearly delighted at the end of the simple but moving ceremony. And to prove it, she let go with a very convincing Oi,oi,oi in response to a chant of Aussie, Aussie, Aussie from her friends. Lizs natjuralisation was suitably launched with the appropriate refreshments after the ceremony. Left: Liz Barry with her certificate. Below: part of the audience. Right: Liz and David dinkum Aussies.
