Born in Grafton, land of the Gumbainggir Nation, and raised in Sydney, land of the Eora Nation. Caroline has been shaped by their mighty water systems. She is passionate about architecture and regenerative design, and how she can joyfully co-create “socially just, culturally rich and ecologically restorative” ways of living in Australia. Her authentic interest and experience in these approaches has been developed and enhanced through her involvement in a diverse range of professional, academic and community commitments.
