Miss Australia

Following on from the hunt for Russian-Australians, apparently one of the most famous "Miss Australia" was a woman named Tania Verstak. She was born in China of Russian parents, and when she won "Miss Australia" in 1961, she was the first woman of immigrant background to win the Title.
And following on from that pearl, the first (only?) Aboriginal woman to win the "Miss Australia" Title was Kathryn Hay in 1999.
