Getting a century in cricket is a massive achievement, but doing it in life is simply impressive. 

Let's take it even further than a century though, a Townsville man has recently turned 110 years old. 

Richie Richardson is the oldest living member of the Kukatj tribe of the Normanton area.

Richie spent many years in the Gulf Country mustering cattle and is all smiles with the birthday wishes he has received- including from the Queen! 

In more recent years Richie has moved in with his daughter Tessie, who cares for him. 

Richie celebrated his 110th Birthday with family in Kirwan.
