Located in far north Western Australia, the Kimberley region is one of the continent’s hottest landscapes and one of the earliest areas in Australia to be settled. Perched on the coast in the region’s south west is the town of Broome, known as the gateway to the Kimberley.
Broome’s climate, growth, and environmental considerations present a significant and unique challenge in housing development. The delivery of affordable, quality, and sustainable new housing in WA’s far north demands creative solutions. It’s a challenge DevelopmentWA has handled with skill and consideration.
On the northern side of the townsite of Broome, DevelopmentWA is delivering Broome North, a development, on completion, will provide 4,800 new homes, that will house approximately 14,000 residents, community amenities, a district shopping centre, two primary and two secondary schools, parks, and public open space. Broome North also includes Blue Haze Estate, an extension of the existing light industrial area to the south east of the site.
Having recently been listed as a finalist in the EnviroDevelopment Chairman’s Choice category of the 2019 UDIA Western Australia Awards, Waranyjarri Estate is recognised as one of the State’s best examples of an innovative sustainable housing development.
It is currently the only regional development in WA to hold an EnviroDevelopment certification, being recognised for outstanding performance across the key sustainability element of ecosystems, energy, water, and community.
