Violet "Vi" Robbins (28 February 1902 – 8 October 2014)[1] was an Australian supercentenarian who was the oldest living person in Australia from the death of Scottish-born Australian Jane Gray on 7 June 2014[1][2] until her own death four months later.[3]

Violet was married to Edward John Robbins and lived at Coogee, New South Wales, before retiring to a nursing facility at Randwick, New South Wales. At the age of 100, she began volunteering at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Randwick, where she worked until 2012.[1] Shortly before her 108th birthday, she was officially recognised as the world's oldest volunteer by Guinness World Records.[4] and The Vi Robbins annual volunteer award was named in her honour, launched by Matt Thistlethwaite, MP for Kingsford Smith.

She died on 8 October 2014 aged 112 years, 222 days. She was succeeded as the oldest living person in Australia by Ethel Farrell.[3]
