Durham released a number of solo albums but was best known as the voice of folk music group
The Seekers, who she performed with from 1963 until 1968, when she left to pursue a solo career.
The band quickly rocketed to worldwide success and sold more than 50m records, with a number
of international hits including I’ll Never Find Another You, The Carnival is Over, A World of Our Own and Georgy Girl.
Durham died in palliative care on Friday night after a brief stay in The Alfred hospital in Melbourne,

complications from a longstanding chronic lung disease, according to the statement.
The Seekers management team member Graham Simpson said: “This is a sad day for Judith’s family,
her fellow Seekers, the staff of Musicoast, the music industry and fans worldwide, and all of
us who have been part of Judith’s life for so long.” Her bandmates in The Seekers – Keith Potger,
