Brought up in Sydney, Australia, Murdoch attended The McDonald College of the Performing Arts, a performing arts school in Sydney, where she studied ballet. After being told by the ballet master, Allan Cross, that she was too tall and would never make it as a ballerina, she changed direction.
As a fashion model she appeared in campaigns for L'Oréal, Revlon, Ralph Lauren, Yves Saint Laurent and Estée Lauder, as well as the 1999 and 2003 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issues. Her magazine covers includes Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Glamour, GQ and Harper's Bazaar in countries like Australia, Spain, United Kingdom and United States. She also appeared on an episode of popular sitcom, Friends
On March 26, 2007, it was reported in the Sydney Morning Herald that Murdoch would finish up her hosting duties on Today as of March 30, 2007. Nine News presenter Kellie Connolly replaced Sarah until May 2007, when Lisa Wilkinson took over as the new co-host on 'Today'.
Jodhi Meares, the ex-host of Australia's Next Top Model, has been officially replaced by Sarah Murdoch after Meares infamously blundered her way through the third season's live finale in 2007 and flat-out refused to appear in 2008's finale. In addition to hosting Top Model, Murdoch also inked a deal with Foxtel to create documentaries with her production company, Room 329.
Murdoch is heavily engaged in assisting not-for-profit arts and charitable bodies, where her name and connections add gravitas and fund-raising capacity. She was appointed International Ambassador of the Australian Ballet Company in 2004 and joined The Australian Ballet Board of Directors in 2006. She is also ambassador of the Murdoch Children's Research Institute and a member of its development board. The Institute was established in 1986 by her husband Lachlan's grandmother, Dame Elisabeth Murdoch and is the largest child health research institute in Australia.
Murdoch is patron of Australia's National Breast Cancer Foundation, and addressed the National Press Club of Australia about the activities of the foundation on October 4, 2006 and again on December 24, 2008. The addresses were televised Australia-wide by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
In 1999, Murdoch married Lachlan Murdoch, son of Australian media mogul Rupert Murdoch. The couple live in Sydney, Australia and have two sons, Kalan Alexander (born on November 9, 2004) and Aidan Patrick (born on May 6, 2006). They announced on October 8th, 2009 that they are currently expecting their third child, with hopes of a girl.
Murdoch is also a keen rugby league fan and supports Manly Sea Eagles.
