#About the event


Kate Wild

Kate Wild

Kate Wild is an investigative journalist whose work with distinguished teams at the ABC has been recognised with three Walkley Awards and a Logie. Her reports from Darwin, where she lived from 2010 to 2016, laid the groundwork for a Four Corners story on juvenile detention that prompted the calling of a Royal Commission.

Kate Wild's consistent coverage of abuse within the Northern Territory juvenile detention system laid the groundwork for a 2016 Four Corners program that sparked the establishment of the Royal Commission into the Protection and Detention of Children in the Northern Territory. 

Like Elijah Holcombe, Kate grew up in country New South Wales; she now lives and works in Sydney. Waiting for Elijah is her first book.
