Graham E. McLoughlin
Graham was brought up around the Bathurst area of NSW and at the age of 15 joined the RAAF as an engineering apprentice. After serving seven years in the RAAF through the late sixties and early seventies, he left the service and travelled around most of the southern states, working in many industries and locations as a fitter, a builder, a plant operator and sometimes even a garbage collector. A move to Bundaberg in Qld added a whole new direction for him where he entered into the human service industry, culminating in a Bachelors degree in Psychology, Sociology and Communication at CQU and an ensuing career assisting his Indigenous brothers and sisters in the Wide Bay Burnett and Central Queensland area. Graham has had a strong interest in Country Music in the region and has performed at times with some of the cream of the industry. One of the highlights of his musical career was to share the stage for the day at the inaugural Childers multi-cultural festival with The Goondiwindi Grey, Merv Webster.
