Couple Shares 50yr Journey; Ray and Jean Goldsmith Have Enjoyed an Active Life in the Many Towns They Have Called Home


RAY and Jean GoldsmithCOs life together has taken them on a journey from Victoria to the Gulf of Carpentaria and back to Dysart, before finally settling into retirement in Yeppoon. One of seven children, Ray was born in Victoria in 1928. His father was a truck driver and used to cart logs.

Ray finished school at 14 and became an apprentice book binder before going to work in a timber mill.

Jean Worlley was born in Williamstown where her family owned timber mills.

After leaving school Jean worked in the family business. Her many duties included making C[pounds sterling]smokosC[yen] for the workmen at the mill.

Ray and Jean first met at a dance and were married at Woori Yallock, Victoria, on December 20, 1952.

By this time Ray owned his own truck and worked as an independent contractor, carting logs and timber and anything else that came along, including working for the Country Roads Board.

The couple lived at Healesville until 1969, when they made a decision to travel across Australia.

They found work along the way and when reaching Mt Isa, where they decided to stay a while.

Ray found work building roads in the Mt Isa district, before being sent to Burketown in the Gulf of Carpentaria on the Albert River. There the family lived in a caravan.
