Robert "Bobby" Nicholls

Bobby Nicholls is a proud Yorta Yorta, Dja Dja Wurrung, and Wadjabalok man and the nephew of Sir Douglas Nicholls. Bobby was a Director of the Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency for 10 years, first joining in 1981. Bobby has also worked in community run organisations such as the Aborigines Advancement League and the Aboriginal Housing Board of Victoria. Bobby is one of the founding members of Yarnin’ Pictures, formed by his passion to document Elders’ stories whilst training Aboriginal youth in the art of filmmaking. Bobby’s hope and vision for the future is: “In 40 years, I have one wish in my lifetime, whilst I’m still surviving, I hope that no child is ever removed from their parents. And I’m hoping that with greater education for our people, especially our younger families of today, that we learn from our mistakes.”
