Australia Street: Meet Isabella and Engelbert

0:00

Isabella and Engelbert say they will vote based on party policies, not the leader, in the upcoming federal election.

This is Isabella and Engelbert. The couple came to Australia from a small town on the border of Italy and Austria in the 1960s with a plan to stay in the country for a couple of years. Fifty years later, they’re still here with two children who have started their own families. Isabella and Engelbert say they will vote based on party policies, not the leader, in the upcoming federal election.

 

Australia Street is filmed in the multicultural and marginal Sydney seat of Banks in the run-up to the 2019 federal election. It is also an opportunity for you to have your say about Australian politics.
