Graham Badrock was born in 1954 in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. That indeed made him a baby boomer. Growing up in the 1950s and 1960s, life was uncomplicated and easy. He recalled asking his father, “Are we middle class, Dad?”

The family didn’t seem to go without, and it wasn’t until he was older that he had time to reflect on his good fortune. As he grew older, his leisure time was spent trying to find a girlfriend. When found, they embarked on a wonderful adventure, indulging in things that today might be off limits to their children.

They moved to Balnarring on the Mornington Peninsula several years after being married. Had the ‘Don’s Party’ times in their spa, much to the delight of the neighbourhood.

Tried to learn to sail and almost drowned, conquered rock climbing with a degree of terror at Mt Buffalo.

Grew up finally and moved to the Victorian town of Bright. Ran a bed and breakfast for over 19 years until the novelty of being nice every day took its toll. Finished signwriting after 45 years as technology caught up with him, thank God.

Travelled all over the place, Norfolk Island where they almost crashed and escaped Lord Howe Island.

They say, “Everyone has a story.” This is ‘his’ so far.



Graham Badrock has grown up with the benefits of being born in Australia in the baby boomer years. His life has been one full of twists and turns, from holidays at the beach to exploring the world, finding a girlfriend and enjoying what they have together: sailing, rock climbing and attending night-time parties at Mt Buffalo. He settled in a small Victorian country town, enjoying the fruits of their labours. They say everyone has a story, this is his so far.
