RIP Trevor ‘Turbo’ Brown

We were sad to hear about the sudden passing of Brunswick local, Trevor ‘Turbo’ Brown. Turbo was a kind and Gentle soul who was often seen around Brunswick and his presence in the area will be sadly missed.

Turbo was Latje Latje Man from Mildura area. A talented painter who had an amazing connection to nature and cultural identity. Turbo Brown was also known as a boxer, rapper and breakdancer during his lifetime. The nickname of Turbo dates from this period of his life.
