Craig Reucassel was born in South Africa, before his parents’ disgust for apartheid saw them relocate to Adelaide then the Southern Highlands of NSW.
He meets Julia atop Mt Gibraltar in Bowral and together they hop into a Renault 12 and drive to the Reucassels’ first house in the area. Next stop is Bowral High School, where Craig was introduced to debating, a discovery that would change the course of his life.
They meet Rowan Cahill, Craig’s former history teacher, whose unorthodox teaching methods inspired young Craig to find his voice. Driving to Sydney, they visit Sydney University, where he met the other Chaser boys, before walking to the nearby house in which the Chaser newspaper was born.
Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery is a long form interview series in which the playful and always entertaining Julia Zemiro walks notable people through their old stomping grounds.
With each step they uncover the people, places and events that shaped them into the person we know today.
