Kununurra Depot Refurbishment

We restored our iconic depot to enhance your experience and improve operations.


The Kununurra Depot is one of the first buildings you see when you drive into town. Built in 1985, it was long overdue for refurbishment. We engaged local suppliers and trades to modernise the depot, improve its functionality and bring the aged network and communication systems up to scratch.

As a result, we're able to provide you a better customer experience and our people a more enjoyable working environment. 

The project was delivered as part of Horizon Power’s $75 million Renew the Regions program, a WA Recovery Plan initiative aimed at creating jobs and improving services in the regions.

What's included?

The Kununurra depot refurbishment will extend the life of the depot by at least a further 20 years and includes:

  • Public access – redesigned to improve the customer experience with better access to parking.
  • Improved facilities – our 36 year old office, staff room, operations and amenities are due for refurbishment.
  • Store/workshop connection – improves safety and integration between our equipment and people where staff exit our office and access staff amenities.
  • Technology – our network and communications systems were upgraded to modern standards to improve efficiency.

A welcoming and inclusive space

The depot redevelopment included landscape artwork on the corner of Victoria Highway and Messmate Way, co-designed by Miriwoong Traditional Owners and artists, in collaboration with Waringarri Aboriginal Arts.

It incorporates culturally significant concepts important to the people of Kununurra and provides a welcoming entrance to the town.

Keeping it local

We awarded Kimberley locals, CWD Builders – Developers the contract to redevelop our Kununurra depot.

Around 90% of this project’s $4.5 million budget was spent in Kununurra, delivering on our promise to generate regional work opportunities and stimulate local economies.
