Deputy Mayor Amber Garden

Re-elected: 2021

Amber moved to the Territory from Queensland in 2003, and with her ever-supportive husband Tim, purchased a property in Farrar in 2010.
Amber has over 15 years experience in HR and administration mainly working in the construction industry. After being re-elected to her position on Council, she has familiarity of Council meeting processes, financial reporting and requirements under the Local Government Act and extensive administration experience. 

Amber is looking forward to continuing being a part of a strong voice for the residents of Palmerston. In particular the Animal Management By-law review is an important piece of work for Amber being a life member and current Board Director of RSPCA Darwin and of course animals, in particular dogs, are a great passion of hers. Amber is also keen in partnering with the Government to reduce crime and its impacts.

Amongst her commitments with Council and RSPCA Darwin, Amber enjoys her time in the gym, watching movies and great food and wine.
Amber looks forward to working with the Mayor and the other Councillors in building and maintaining new-found confidence and trust through informed decision-making, to ensure Palmerston remains financially sustainable and works towards building a stronger, safer and better community.
