connecting with country


Closer connections with Country are shaping and informing the new hospital to create a place of healing and wellbeing for all.

Community members are shaping Country for the new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital development.

“Since time immemorial, our ancestors, the First People, have been caring for country in a sustainable way, passing on this continuing responsibility and custodianship to countless generations.” Connecting with Country Framework, Government Architect NSW.

Health Infrastructure and Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD) are working with Yerrabingin and Conrad Gargett (architects) to host a range of activities that recognise and celebrate the local ecology and Aboriginal cultural heritage of the Eurobodalla.

The new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital development is a pilot project for the NSW Government Architect’s 'Connecting with Country' framework. The framework ensures Aboriginal consultation occurs through the delivery of the new hospital. 

Connecting with Country seeks local Aboriginal knowledge in design and in strategies to reduce the impacts of natural events such as fire, drought and flooding through sustainable land and water use practices as well as cultural health, wellbeing and healing practices.
