Good to hear Ruth Newman has had her longevity verified while alive. She survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, and is still breathing.

Two new 110+ women have just been recently verified.

 

Anonymous (15 March 1900) - Japan

Ruth Newman (23 September 1901) - USA

 

Both find their spot in the Top 10.

hang on, surely she is not the only Australian over 100?  is that even what you meant?

 

 

or super centenarian

 meant supercentenarian, dammit.  :P

 

Yes, we haven't all drunk ousrselves into the grave by 99.

So Rolf Harris' enforced alcohol free holiday at HM pleasure, may give him longevity and national celebrity in another direction, then.

Just some random stats for anyone who is interested:

 

For those who don't know, the nation of Australia was created on the 1st of January, 1901 (for better or for worse.)  Prior to that, it had been a cluster of British colonies.

 

I decided to look up the last surviving colonial Australian and it seems to be one Mrs Miriam Schmierer who died in September 2011 at 112 years of age:

The current oldest llving Australian is Ethel Farrell, born on the 27th of November 1902, when the country was still under two years old.  Mrs Farrell, was however, born over in India (also, of course, a British colony at that time.) Farrell is also the only living Australian centenarian at the moment:
