The Dalton Family


Matt, 52, a healthcare company director and his wife Kate, 50, an airline business development executive, have been happily married for over 20 years. Their eldest daughter Millie, 20, is currently studying a double degree in Commerce/Arts at University, while younger sister Holly, 18, is studying Communications.

Kate and the girls love watching teen flicks and shows like The Bachelor Australia together. Sometimes they liken their family to the real-life version of the Dunphy’s from Modern Family - one of their favourite shows.

Matt and his daughters share a love of sport, especially AFL. If they are not at the game together, they are cheering on their favourite team in front of the television. Matt also plays the role of host of Family Feud, a show the family re-enacts in their lounge room with family and friends.

With varying television tastes between them, there is always a disagreement over the girls’ constant chatter and the television remote for sport versus lifestyle shows. You will always find Kate with a cup of tea, the girls with their mobile phones and Matt just trying to get a word in edgeways.
