Our Pathways


We believe in a strong and cohesive Hedland where the community supports each other through thick and thin.

Hedland is known for the strength of its community. Like a rough diamond, it’s not showy, but strong and cohesive at its core. The Hedland Collective is committed to supporting initiatives and projects that bring the community together in positive ways and will do this through a focus on supporting households, communities and community organisations.
