Orange Sky Australia is committed to providing access to clean clothes, warm showers and genuine, non-judgemental conversation for all Australians. In remote communities, access to laundry services can be limited and cost prohibitive. To support this, Orange Sky works alongside remote communities to build impact through free laundry, local employment and local partnerships.

Our weekly impact in Doomadgee

Orange Sky launched our fourteenth remote service in Doomadgee, QLD in October 2023.

Home to the Waanyi and Gangalidda people, Doomadgee is located in far North Queensland, situated about 140 kilometres from the Northern Territory border.

From our research and through conversations with local groups and stakeholders, we have learnt there is a strain on available resources within the community – specifically the need and demand for washing facilities big enough to fit blankets and bedding.

Working hand-in-hand with Doomadgee Aboriginal Shire Council, North West Hospital and Health Service and the community, we are excited to launch an Orange Sky service in Doomadgee.

Through our bright orange solar-powered remote laundry vehicle, fitted with three washing machines and three dryers, this partnership offers local employment opportunities, but most importantly, a safe space for people to connect and do their washing to ensure much needed access to essential hygiene infrastructure in the region.
