After celebrating her 112th birthday on Monday, the oldest woman in Australia has revealed her secret. 

'She's still got the same wit and spark in her,' her granddaughter, Lynn Bowler, told The West Australian.

Ms Vivian fled Scotland during WWI when she was just 10-years-old.

She travelled by boat to Perth with her brother and sister, with her parents following on a separate ship soon after.

The 112-year-old married her husband Jack and had a son and daughter. She now has five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Her daughter, Peggy, has been living with her for the last 12 years to help out. Ms Vivian, who never smoked and hardly drank alcohol, has credited an active lifestyle, eating right for her long life.


'I think I've always sort of tried to do the right thing as far as my diet goes,' Ms Vivian added.

'I'm very thankful that I'm still here.'
