Adelaide loves to remember Lady Hardy, as 'our' Joan McInnes - one of the state's most popular models and entertainers.


Starting her career of modelling, singing and entertaining in Adelaide in the 1960s, Joan moved on to Sydney in 1979 to further her career. After enjoying regular appearances on the Don Lane and Mike Walsh Shows and musical partnerships with well known Australian singers Joan joined NWS 9 in 1981 as entertainment producer/reporter on the Today Show until 1988 when she moved to the Ten Network to host the successful national morning program ‘Til Ten.


In December 1991, Joan married Sir James Hardy and left to pursue an even busier schedule supporting James's work and appearances nationally and overseas.


Since then she has served many local charitable and artistic associations, including taking up the mantel of Patron in 2003 for the Flinders Medical Centre Foundation’s Breast Cancer Research and Development Fund.
