About Robin

Robin arrived in Darwin in 1979.  She raised her family, had a varied professional career and has been involved with numerous community activities.

Robin was first elected to Council in 2010.  Her vision for Darwin is for a very liveable, sustainable city with lots of green open space to support our relaxed tropical lifestyle.  She believes in creating a caring community that supports everyone.  She is passionate about good planning and continues to represent the community’s interests on the Development Consent Authority.

Robin is best known for her work in sustainability and was the COOLmob Program Manager.  She has also been a health researcher for the Fred Hollows Foundation, has established the ‘women’s ranger program’ for the Northern Land Council and conducted park management research for the Centre for Indigenous Natural and Cultural Resource Management. Prior to this she was a display designer for the NT Museum and Art Galleries and has also run her own graphic design business.  

Sport and social activity have always been a big part of her life.  She has coordinated community projects such as the Fringe Festival and Walk Against Want, has been a voluntary refugee settlement support coordinator and served on school councils.  For relaxation, Robin enjoys gardening and bushwalking, and racing her catamaran on Darwin harbour.

Robin has also lived and worked in England and Botswana where she established a museum and cultural centre and helped found Botswana’s first Women Against Rape program.

Robin has a Certificate in Business Management, a Masters of Development Management and is a Member of the Institute of Australian Company Directors
