Virginia Westbury is an internationally published Australian journalist, award winning filmmaker and travel writer who specializes in covering a wide variety of social and political issues worldwide. She presently lives in the Northern Rivers District of New South Wales when not traveling and exploring the world.

In recent years Virginia has become an accomplished amateur genealogist, extensively researching her family’s roots across five countries, seeking the truth about her mysterious English-born Australian ancestor, the author Frank Atha Westbury. Her efforts not only led to surprises for the Westbury family, but she also uncovered a deeper truth about the historical and cultural origins of the Anglo-Celtic peoples who invaded the antipodes and created modern Australia.
