Passion Led Us Here

Our History

Broome CRC celebrates our 30th anniversary in 2021, having been one of three Learning Network Centres in Western Australia opened in 1991. The Learning Network Centres were established to make training courses available to remote regions. Over time, Learning Network Centres evolved into Telecentres, designed as a communication centre for local businesses and community members, and grew to a network of around 100 centres in regional Western Australia. Telecentres linked country Western Australia with trade, employment and training opportunities through the emerging internet – locally, regionally, inter- and intra-state and internationally.


In 2011, our 20th year, the Telecentre network was rebranded as a network of Community Resource Centres although many people still refer to us as the Telecentre. 


Broome Community Resource Centre relaunched with expanded capabilities, thanks to funding from Royalties for Regions, including public access computers, a range of office services, video conferencing, exam supervision and regular computer and other short training classes.

Western Australian Community Resource Network (WACRN)

The Western Australian Community Resource Network (WACRN) is comprised of over 100 rural, remote and regional Community Resource Centres (CRCs). CRCs provide access to government and community services and information, and undertake community, business and economic development activities. 

The centres are not-for-profit organisations that are independently owned and operated by their local community. Their services are available for all community members, whether resident or visitors, so find your nearest CRC whenever you are travelling in Western Australia at
