Great news for the Warmun community!

Regional Development Minister Don Punch has  announced $2.9 million funding to repurpose the former aged care facility in Warmun into workers accommodation, helping deliver affordable housing options for the remote Indigenous community in the East Kimberley.

The facility, which is owned by Warmun Community, was built in 2014 as part of the reconstruction efforts following a devastating flood event. However, it has never become fully operational due to challenges securing an operator and increasing Federal regulatory requirements for aged care facilities.

We are incredibly proud to be working alongside the community at Warmun on this project – their perseverance to bring this incredible building (designed by Finn Pedersen and Iredale Pedersen Hook) back to life is inspiring.

Congratulations to the team, especially Heather MacRae, Michelle Mackenzie, the good folks at the Kimberley Development Commission, and Minister Don Punch.

This is a great and long overdue outcome for the Gija people of Warmun.
