Entrepreneur and deportment educator June Dally-Watkins is one of Australia’s best known models. Born in 1927, June grew up on a remote property at Watson’s Creek, near Tamworth. Her mother was a single parent—a great stigma at the time—and June kept the story of her birth a secret for much of her life. When June’s mother took her to Farmers department store in Sydney to ask if she could be a model, a successful career was launched. In 1950, June started the southern hemisphere’s first personal development school in Sydney to train young women in etiquette and deportment. A year later, she started Australia's first model agency and modelling school and later established a Business Finishing College, juggling her work interests with bringing up four children. June is Ambassador-at-Large for the charity, Crossroads International, and continues to be involved personally with her students.
