"At a town hall forum in the seat of North Sydney, Cathy McGowan took a question from a nervous volunteer on a topic that strikes fear into the heart of many novice campaigners – door knocking.

It's the kind of campaign know-how the seat's independent challenger, Kylea Tink, invited McGowan here to find out.

"There was not a single person in my campaign who wanted to door knock," McGowan told the group. "And by the time my first campaign finished, the door-knocking teams were the most successful, most fun, of any of the stuff we did in the campaign."


Tink is running against Liberal incumbent Trent Zimmerman on what would once have been considered a "safe" margin of 9.3 per cent.

"I genuinely don't believe there is such a thing as a safe seat in Australian politics anymore," Zimmerman told Australian Story.

"Only a fool would take their electorate for granted."
