Listen To Older Voices: Chris Lamacroft – Part 2



Welcome to Listen To Older Voices, a program produced by Rob Greaves and podcast through the Toorak Times and Tagg

Welcome to the second of a 3-part program featuring the Life & Times of Chris Lamacroft.

In part 1 we learned that Chris was born in 1944 in South Australia but moved, while still as a young boy, to Fremantle in WA.

At this time Fremantle was largely untouched by development and the young Chris appreciated the natural splendour of the coast and the city of Fremantle. It was during this period he developed and displayed a passion for both boating and ecology.

In this part of his story we learn how Chris met his wife to be, Hillary. However, his story and his adventures have only just begun as he shares stories of living in Thailand and the Philippines trying to sell farm equipment whilst dodging insurgent rebels.

It is toward the end of part-2 of his story where his “green credentials” begin to shine and he expresses his concerns over what is happening both locally and globally, ecology wise.
