End Time: 11.30 am

Map and Directions
Over 13 years ago Ken Eaton lost his wife Susan to the heartbreaking affliction of Younger Onset Dementia. A dream they shared was to one-day ride Australia on a motorbike together.
Six months after Sue’s passing, tragedy again struck with the death of their oldest daughter. Ken knew a decision had to be made regarding his future and decided to follow that simple quotation to live every day as if it is your last, but believe you will live forever.
In those 13 years, Ken resurrected his stagnated business from 5 years of caring for Sue, completed an engineering degree with honours, become a published author, founded a charity for dementia awareness but most importantly, bought a motorbike and took to the roads of Australia with Chloe, Sue’s little companion dog.
Ken and Chloe talk about their travels and adventures on their motorbike over the past 12 years and reflect on life through stories and some of the poetry written on the road.
