Fitzroy Crossing

In 2023, with the assistance of some key partners, including the Government of Western Australia, QANTAS, and HART Sport, the Australian Sports Foundation was able to help deliver $30,000 worth of sporting equipment to indigenous communities in Fitzroy Crossing, WA.

Located in the Kimberleys, the Fitzroy Valley spans an area similar to the size of Austria and has over 40 communities, five language groups two jurisdictions, and is home to approximately 4,000 individuals. With a relatively young population, sport in the Fitzroy Valley is vital for building connections and bringing communities together.

" Sport is everything for the people in the Kimberley. It is an enabler, it brings people together and gives kids the opportunity to engage."

- Glenn Sterle, Labor Senator for WA
