Our projects are located on, or near, lands that are traditionally owned by or under the customary use of Indigenous Peoples and we believe that knowledge and input from the local and greater community requires continuous and significant engagement.
Province maintains a core tenet of establishing positive, productive and enduring relationships with Traditional Owners of the land, local communities, and landholders. We believe these relationships are critical to the success of any project. The Company has commenced engagement with both the Yinggarda and Baiyungu peoples upon whose land the HyEnergy® project is planned and look forward to continuing our relationships with the Traditional Owners as the project continues.
Cultural awareness is an important part of understanding the history and connection to county that Aboriginal people have. Our employees were fortunate enough to receive cultural awareness training by a Yinggarda Elder and the Company looks forward to continuing this training as we grow.
Community Partnerships, Sponsorships and Events
We want to deliver long-term benefits for the communities that we operate in. Province offers financial support and partnerships for organisations, events and projects that will benefit the local community.
If you are a not-for-profit group-including schools, organisations, clubs, associations and charities, have events or projects located within the Gascoyne Region we would love to hear from you.
To avoid disappointment, please provide us with plenty of notice to get involved. Ideally 8 to 10 weeks prior to the event or program and we’ll endeavour to contact you within a couple of weeks.

Matt & KT Cooking on Country
As part of the Carnarvon Chamber of Commerce Christmas Street Party, we were able to support the very talented Matt and KT, previous contestants from Channel 7’s My Kitchen Rules who provided the Carnarvon community with a “Cooking on Country” experience, which consisted of a taste testing stall with healthy, native Australian ingredients along with initiatives to raise community members awareness in the risks of processed foods.
Traditional cooking has always been extremely important amongst worldwide cultures, Matt and KT hope to influence the community of all backgrounds to cook delicious and healthy recipes.
Being a local, Matt was raised from humble beginnings, who went on to achieve the level of success and popularity from mainstream media. He shared his story of struggles, disappointment and ultimately empowerment, which he hopes will lead more young people to believe in themselves and use this as motivation for change.
Carnarvon Windfest 2022
The Carnarvon Windfest is a windsurfing, wingfoil, SUP and kiteboarding event with market stalls, food and live entertainment.
It was an incredible event, even though the main event was pushed back a day!
Carnarvon Windfest is a non-profit sporting event association made up of 9 committee members and 30-35 event volunteers. This year’s Carnarvon WindFest was held over a four-day period 20-23rd January 2022 as a competitive windsurfing, wing foil, kiteboarding, SUP and windrush catamaran racing event.
This was the third year of the event, which aims to capitalise on the region’s consistent summer winds to bring competitors and visitors from WA and interstate to compete, bringing awareness and economic benefit to local businesses during our recognised off-peak season.
From the organisers perspective the event was a huge success, in spite of the harsh weather conditions.
2022 saw us double our participant numbers year on year to 114 competitors and 28 kids and adults registered for our free lessons on the Sunday morning.
The event managed to complete ten race events over four days, which was only possible thanks to the support of our dedicated volunteers and several local businesses.
The free festival aims to provide a free community event with family friendly entertainment, children’s activities and multicultural food stalls whilst promoting this recreational sporting event.
This year’s Carnarvon Windfest festival attracted over 400 visitors which was held at the Carnarvon yacht club.
In 2021 we sponsored the North West Youth Surfing program! The Norwest boardriders were able to purchase 8 soft top surf boards, leg ropes and fins!

HyEnergy® Project Office, Carnarvon
Our HyEnergy® Project office in Carnarvon was officially opened in January. Thank you to Hydrogen Industry Minister Alannah MacTiernan for doing the honours. Ms MacTiernan was joined by Yinggarda (Ingaarda) and Baiyungu traditional owners, the Shire of Carnarvon, the Carnarvon Chamber of Commerce and Industry and other community members.
We value the widespread support we are receiving throughout the Gascoyne region and we look forward to our new Carnarvon office becoming a valuable resource for engaging with members of the community.
