Tony Packard Holden was a successful and profitable business that used the advertising catch phrase "just up the Windsor Road from Baulkham Hills, and let me do it right for you!" In the course of that business, he illegally used concealed listening devices, later to be the subject of criminal charges.
Tony Packard appeared in “Whicker's World - Living with Waltzing Matilda” Episode 7. He described his belief that Australia was “the lucky country” but expressed doubts about the future of the country due to the strength of the unions.
