Vale Jeffrey Robinson

The National Trust of Australia (Victoria) is devastated to hear about the sudden passing of Jeff Robinson.

Jeffrey Robinson epitomised the essence of championing heritage and sustainability. His unwavering enthusiasm resonated deeply across various organisations, businesses, and communities fortunate enough to experience his support and shared knowledge. Whether through his active involvement in numerous events or his dedicated service on various boards, Jeff’s boundless energy remained a constant source of inspiration.

At the National Trust, Jeffrey’s contributions were invaluable. His leadership in chairing forums during the inaugural Heritage Trades Show in 2023 exemplified his commitment to advancing traditional trades and sustainability initiatives. Additionally, his involvement in the Rippon Lea Endowment Fund, facilitated by Simon Molesworth, further underscored his immediate impact and dedication to preservation efforts.

In extending our heartfelt condolences to Jeff’s family and close associates, we recognise the profound personal loss they endure. Within our professional sphere, we mourn the passing of a remarkable changemaker and an exceptionally compassionate colleague.

Jeff’s presence enriched our world immeasurably, and we are forever grateful for the privilege of having shared in his journey.
