Lucy Barbour's Biography
Lucy Barbour is the ABC's national regional affairs reporter at Parliament House and files to various programs including Landline. Her reporting takes her off the beaten track to cover issues affecting people in country Australia. She's covered federal politics for television, radio and online from Canberra, and worked for the flagship radio current affairs programs AM, The World Today and PM. She also worked as the political producer for 7.30. Lucy began her career as a rural reporter in the towns of Shepparton, Horsham and Mildura. She is president of the National Rural Press Club.
Lucy grew up in the farming surrounds of northern Tasmania, but it took a few years travelling through Asian jungles and working on Spanish avocado farms before she became a rural reporter.
She's worked for Andrew Denton on Enough Rope and has written about food, travel and news for a number of Australian and overseas magazines and newspapers.
Lucy's segue into radio was at Sydney community station 2SER, where she reported on current affairs and produced and presented a "Food Show", covering everything from city beekeepers to market gardeners.
