Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton tells her story to Gold Coasters

A FEW inspirational Australians are on the Gold Coast for this weekend’s Living The Dream event.

Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton is today’s guest speaker, drawing from her experience of being wrongly imprisoned for the death of her baby dauther Azaria

The New Zealand-born Australian spent three years behind bars from 1982-86 before being exonerated in 1988.

ARTICLE CONTINUES AFTER THIS ADVERTISEMENT reports, cowardly abuse towards Ms Chamberlain-Creighton has gradually subsided over the years, since a coronial inquest almost two years ago found that a dingo killed Azaria near Uluru in 1980.

“Until that came out categorically in a court, a lot of people felt like I still wasn’t exonerated,” Ms Chamberlain-Creighton said.

For three decades, however, she was subjected to anonymous letters and cowards uttering abuse near escalators.

“All you can do is feel sorry for them – they have nothing better in life to do than try and make people feel as miserable as they obviously are,” she said.

Ms Chamberlain-Creighton believes her strong Christian faith helped her survive the ordeal.

“When you know the truth, when God knows the truth, you leave that up to Him,” she said.

The free Living the Dream forum at QT Hotel in Surfers Paradise is organised by motivational speaker and former Hillsong pastor Pat Mesiti.

Former Olympic swimmer Kieren Perkins will attend on Saturday night, while other guest speakers include Daniel Flynn, Dr John Tickell and Travis Bell.
