Aunty Violet Carr

Was born on the banks of the Macquarie River on the Common along with her sister Claudia, brothers and sisters.

Aunty Violet was the first Aboriginal person to be employed on the Victorian Tramways, which lead to an article being written about her in the Melbourne paper. Aunty Violet feels at home in Wellington and says she will stay here ‘until God guides her home’
