As a young man, Harold Wilson made a trip to Sydney to attend the Royal Easter Show.
What he did not know at the time he made that trip was that he would be introduced to the woman who would become his life-long partner and friend.
"He'd come down to go to the show, and I lived across the street from his sister. I knew her, but I didn't know him, so she said we should all go together," said Mr Wilson's wife of 65 years, Rita Wilson.
"I was only a kid, maybe 17 or 18 then, I had no idea who he'd be. But we just knew somehow."
This week, Mr and Mrs Wilson celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary, remembering the day they said 'I do' at a chapel in the Sydney suburb of Campsie.
Since that day they have lived their six decades together on a farm out near Charles Sturt University in Wagga.
"He was a 'bushie', I was a 'townie' but we just clicked and that was that," Mrs Wilson said.
"I grew up in the city, but I think I must have been a farm girl in another life, I've always just fit in on the land."

When first the newly wed couple arrived in Wagga, Mrs Wilson recalls, there was a steep learning curve for herself. Her husband taught her to drive, cook and care for their animals - her favourites being "the chooks most of the time, and the lambs when they came along".
"I wasn't much of a cook when we met, but I learnt," Mrs Wilson said.
"I ended up cooking for all the shearers, so I learnt quickly. There was just no other option, you had to do it. It was hard in the days before we had electricity, but we made do."
Together, Mr and Mrs Wilson have three children, whom they describe as being their "greatest life achievement". They have a further nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Describing their life together as "hard sometimes, but rewarding all the time", the couple said they had always known they would make it to their current wedding milestone.
"We always knew we'd be together for a long time," Mrs Wilson said.
"Marriage is a lot of give-and-take and you give more than you get, but it's always good."
