Natalie is one of the country’s most recognisable actresses, having played the villainous Izzy Hoyland on Neighbours from 2003 to 2007.   

She recently moved to Byron Bay after saying she needed to embrace a more laid-back lifestyle after years of living in Melbourne.

Speaking to WHO magazine in March, she said she had an overwhelming feeling her family needed to move there.

‘I’d done a retreat up here four years ago and just had this overwhelming feeling that we needed to move here. Then, six months before Covid-19 hit, we did it,’ she said. 

Natalie is married to her Rogue Traders bandmate Cameron McGlinchey and they share two children, daughter Harper, 10, and son Hendrix, seven.

The singer revealed that she and Cameron, 45, try to make sure they don’t take on too much work that will impact their family time.

‘We’re a family that really likes to spend a lot of time together, so any work we take on can’t involve too much time away from each other,’ she said.

‘We’ve got such a great house now with space; we’re actually building a big outdoor chess set because Hendrix loves to play. Harper’s always putting on shows with her Squishy toys for us.’

Natalie became a household name in the mid-2000s when she played ‘homewrecker’ Izzy Hoyland on Neighbours.
