We are empowering rural communities to grow and thrive from within.

WA’s Wheatbelt – our 150,000 square km. 150Square was founded on the simple belief that strong rural communities begin with empowered people who have the resources and know-how to effect change. Our philosophy is that it is People who drive the growth and inspire the innovation that helps our communities thrive. That’s why, across our services, our focus is leveraging our experience, knowledge and networks to develop your organisation through people-centred strategic solutions.

We are ready to help you
make a difference.

Who is 150Square?

Here at 150Square, we all live, work and have families in the Wheatbelt. We work across all areas of rural WA and we understand the everyday challenges rural, remote and regional organisations face and what makes regions ‘tick’. Rural communities matter to us, which is why people are at the heart of all we do.
