Diana Warnock, a former newspaper and radio journalist, went into politics at the age of 52 when she was elected as the State member of Parliament for Perth in 1993.
Before entering politics, Diana was an activist for about 30 years for women’s rights and for minorities, and always belonged to many community and voluntary groups, both locally in Perth and nationally. She grew up in the Eastern Goldfields—between Menzies and Leonora—but lived most of her adult life in the city of Perth. Her late husband Bill Warnock, an Irish-Scot, grew up in a Glasgow slum and migrated to Australia in his teens. They both graduated in arts from UWA.
