What we do

We work regionally

We truly understand living in regional and remote Australia, as we live here too.
Our knowledge and experience has been forged by the intellectual, economic and social fabric of our regional and tropical location, set amid irreplaceable ecosystems and cultures that fire our intellects and imaginations. 

We provide the service you need

We service a broad range of government agencies, businesses, organisations and regions on a range of projects grant funding application to designing a policy and programs and we are exceptionally well placed to deliver community development, planning and infrastructure projects and programs.

We make planning simple

Our hands-on industry experience and the discipline of teaching planning at James Cook University means we know how to demystify planning and community development.

Indigenous Co-design

Co-design and co-production of projects, programs and services. We believe that the best projects are developed, led, and delivered by communities themselves. Our role is to empower people to take control of their futures and to enable communities to actively influence outcomes. We do this by being on-the-ground from the beginning, listening to stories, asking questions and building long-lasting relationships.
