Robinson River Community

Posted by: 4bc.com.au | 1 November, 2012 - 11:48 AM

4BC Mornings: Greg Cary talks to Bill South, CEO of the Robinson River Community in the Northern Territory about the challenges of managing a shire the size of Victoria with a population of 6,000-7,000 people.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Greg, Robinson River has a population of about 200-300 people in town and a maximum of another 100 people on the surrounding outstations. Not sure where you got the population of 6,000 to 7,000 from!??

  • Bill did come from a paternalistic value system. He actually cared and regardless of what may appear to be an assimilation mentality being a resident of Robinson River is better than any other Territory Community.
    So often the staff who occupy communities are more dysfunctional than the residents they are meant to be servicing.
    Robinson River people are a very special group and I only hope that the Board are now stepping up to the plate to build on their already strong foundations.Family first and money later.

  • I reckon the LNP man will now be at long odds to win the sunshine coast seat. I think a roughey will get it.

  • Mr South is part of the problem not part of the solution. He has divided the community and plays people off against each other. Best he go back to distorting furniture which he has a long track record.

  • Sad when a community of beautiful people have told me they feel betrayed by the very person that was put there to help. Why is Bill has to drive 1200km to Darwin to catch a plane when he says in his interview he has a million dollar airstrip at Robinson River. All I can say is what a load of croc. I have met the people of Robinson River and many of them I class as friends. Stay Strong Robinson River you deserve the same choices all other Australians take for granted.

  • Good ole Bill South...he would have been perfect in the old welfare days of the assimilation era. He may one come to your community and save you too!
