creating the future through connecting with communities

I have been fortunate to work in some areas rich in both Aboriginal and European history.

Adjacent to the Old Onslow town site established in 1885 at the mouth of the Ashburton River in Western Australia, I was involved in paving the way for the creation of the Port of Ashburton, which was established in 2011 to facilitate the Wheatstone Development.

The old town site was destroyed in a cyclone in 1897, and the second and third jetties were affected by silting. This led to the construction of a new Jetty some 18 kilometres and ultimately, to the relocation of the town of Onslow in 1925.
