'Broome Time' is all about getting things done in your own time, but at Broome North development is moving along at a cracking pace.
Waranyjarri Estate (pronounced Wa-run-jarri) is the first residential development at Broome North and is rising from the red dirt to provide fresh new lifestyle opportunities for the local community. Named from the traditional Yawunu Language, it means 'one' or 'first'.
It will feature a new primary school opening in 2015, a network of walking and cycle paths, parklands and open space where you can relax, have a picnic, or kick the footy around. A service station is already providing the local community with convenience shopping and a larger local centre with a supermarket, some speciality shops and a community centre is planned for the future.
Once complete the Broome North development will provide an exciting mix of residential housing and business opportunities for up to 13,000 people.
LandCorp is working with the Shire of Broome, the Yawuru traditional land owners and private developers to create a place that will respect the history and culture of the area, as well as blending in with the local environment.
We're also making affordable land and homes a priority, with a focus on climate responsive and clever designs to encourage sustainable living.
