There are many ways to get involved in our work but joining a KTF event is definitely one of the easiest, not to mention the most fun. We have events to suit all tastes and ages, from large-scale fundraising events like the Ralph Honner Oration Dinner to awareness raising events like the ‘KTF Cocktail’ to smaller state-based events run by local KTF supporters.

He has been Australia’s best-selling non-fiction author in the last decade and in November 2013 released his current best-seller on Ned Kelly.The most popular after-dinner speaker in Australia, he is married to Today Show co-host Lisa Wilkinson and they have three children.
