As a ‘political wife’, Zara Holt brought a valuable dowry to her marriage to Harold Holt. For twenty years before he became Prime Minister, her charm, candour and business connections fuelled his political career. As energetic a traveller and ‘meet-and-greeter’ as her husband, Zara Holt played a significant role in weaving influential relationships. The detailed travel accounts she relayed to friends and family are key records in investigating the importance of that role.
