It was the day before his 34th birthday. A Sunday morning like any other.
Walter Mikac kissed his two pyjama-clad little girls and wife goodbye before heading off to play golf.
He was hosting a local tournament on the sprawling greens of a course in Tasmania. His wife, Nanette, and young daughters, Alannah, six, and Madeline, three, decided to have a picnic at the local historic site of Port Arthur where Nanette often volunteered as a ghost tour guide. They planned to meet up later that day.
They never got to meet up. That morning farewell would be the last time he ever saw his family.
Speaking on Wednesday's episode of Anh Do's Brush With Fame, Walter, now 56, recalled what happened that afternoon on Australia's darkest days in history - the Port Arthur massacre -pinpointing the moment he realised his family had been ripped away from him in an unfathomable act of evil.
