The Yindjibarndi people have for the past decade pursued nation building commercial partnerships that have delivered financial benefits to the community together with jobs and training opportunities.

The Yindjibarndi businesses are majority owned by Yindjibarndi Wealth Pty Ltd, which is in turn owned by the community and commercial trust, YCCL. The trust was established in 2013 to provide long term community and commercial for the Yindjibarndi people.

The successful contracting business Yurra Pty Ltd has also been operating since 2013. It generates $60m in revenue and employs 170 people, with 40 per cent Aboriginal employment. From starting off in cleaning and landscaping contracts, Yurra has now expanded into construction and major service contracts for large multinational corporations and government agencies. Yurra has a majority stake in the construction business GBSC Yurra, which was established in 2016. One of its defining achievements was the redevelopment of the former Victoria Hotel in Roebourne, which has become the Ganalili Centre. GBSC Yurra was in 2023 crowned Rio Tinto’s “Supplier of the Year” at a gala event attended by then Premier Mark McGowan and Rio’s Iron Ore CEO Simon Trott.

Yindjibarndi Wealth owns 50 percent of the WA operations of Cedrent Enterprises, which is part of the global Enterprise car rental group. Cedrent also owns a franchise that operates in South Australia and the Northern Territory with 11 locations, including Darwin. In WA, it operates in Karratha, Newman, Port Hedland, with plans to open soon in Kalgoorlie.

The next phase of expansion will see the Yindjibarndi people participate in major renewable energy projects. In mid-2023 we established Yiyangu a 100% Yindjibarndi Wealth owned entity to lead our renewable energy portfolio.  Yiyangu has now partnered with ACEN an international leader in renewable energy to create Yindjibarndi Energy Corporation which plans to develop projects to generate 3 gigawatts of wind and solar generation, and battery storage, on Yindjibarndi Ngurra. This would be three times the output of the largest power plant in WA. The Yindjibarndi share of these projects will be a minimum of 25% with an opportunity to fund up to 50% equity.

Water infrastructure is high on our agenda given that the City of Karratha and mining and industrial companies draw heavily on Yindjibarndi water resources around the Millstream area. The Ngurra that feeds Millstream is determined as having exclusive native title rights. To this end, Yindjibarndi Water has been created to develop water infrastructure and water treatment technologies.
