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 Fitzroy Crossing
Orange Sky’s sixth remote community launched on the banks of the mighty Fitzroy River in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Our laundry service was established in the community after an initial meeting and washing visit earlier in 2021.
The Fitzroy Valley encapsulates five Traditional Owner groups – the Bunuba, Gooniyandi, Nyikina, Walmajarri and Wangkatjungka people. The community of 1,300 people is surrounded by renowned Country including the Fitzroy River, Geikie Gorge, Windjana Gorge and Mimbi Caves.
Orange Sky is pleased to be working alongside Marra Worra Worra, the Traditional Owners and residents to deliver a service to positively connect the community.
