The Charlotte Project


Charlotte Atkinson was one of the most accomplished women of her era and she lived in the Southern Highlands at Oldbury Farm in Sutton Forest

  • She was Australia’s first published children’s book author

  • She was a pioneer in the fight for women’s legal rights becoming the first Australian woman to secure legal custody of her own children

  • She was an extraordinary trailblazer in women’s education


Help us to raise $80,000 for a commemorative statue recognising charlotte Atkinson, to be erected at Berrima park

The Charlotte Project is part of a worldwide movement for commemorative justice in celebration of significant historical women in our communities.


Charlotte’s story is remarkable. Her statue will be the first statue of a real woman in the Southern Highlands.

The Charlotte Project Appeal is a campaign hosted by The Southern Highlands Foundation
