Indira Naidoo

Distinguished broadcaster and sustainable food advocate

Indira Naidoo is one of Australia’s most popular broadcasters and authors.
During her 30-year award-winning journalistic career, Indira has hosted and reported for some of the country’s most distinguished news and current affair programs – including ABC’s Late Edition nightly news and as an anchor and reporter for SBS TV’s the World News Tonight.

In recent years Indira’s journalistic interest has shifted to the role global environmental issues play in conflict, poverty, food security and homelessness. For the past 10 years Indira has been an ambassador for Sydney’s homeless crisis centre the Wayside Chapel. She has helped establish the Wayside Chapel’s award-winning rooftop vegetable garden and conducts garden and cooking classes for its homeless visitors.

She is the author of best-selling ‘The Edible Balcony’, about growing food in small spaces and ‘The Edible City’, about the Wayside Chapel and community gardening. Indira has designed two award-winning gardens for the Australian Garden Show Sydney, and through her garden company helps community groups build their own food gardens.  In 2017 Indira hosted SBS’s ratings winning series ‘Filthy Rich and Homeless’.
