No one understands the challenges of living in the regions like a local. They’re able to understand and empathise with the extreme temperatures, tropical cyclones and flooding, and the effects they have on your power supply and bills. That’s why in order to serve you better, we’re relocating our contact service centre from Melbourne to downtown Chinatown in Broome.
Our new Customer Experience Centre will create jobs as we use local businesses for the design, construction and fit-out. We will employ ten new full-time staff from the community, including two Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander trainees.
Whether you’re able to visit our new centre or not, you’ll receive helpful service from West Aussies who are here, on the ground, working to help you.

Nila Janyba, our exciting new customer experience centre, has opened it’s doors and we’re welcoming customers.
Located in Broome’s Paspaley Plaza, our team at Nila Janyba offer face-to-face customer services and interactive digital experiences for young and old.

We are pleased to announce that our beautiful new customer experience centre has officially been named Nila Janyba, meaning ‘knowledge sharing’ in the local Yawuru language.
We worked with the Yawuru organisation to choose a name that acknowledges the Yawuru people and their continuing culture, and that also represents the intention behind our customer experience centre.
We love it and couldn’t be prouder to share it with you.
