Our Story

Birribee commenced operations in Western Sydney in September 2020 with 4 properties under management.

  • In December 2020 we were part of the successful consortium selected to develop a renewal program for the Tolland Estate in Wagga Wagga
  • In May 2021 we were awarded $3.55m under the Aboriginal Community Housing Investment Fund. 
  • In June 2021, Birribee was the first Aboriginal CHP approved as a Housing Pathways provider with direct access to the NSW Government's social housing access and intake system. 
  • In July 2021, a further 123 properties in Western Sydney were transferred to Birribee. 

  • In August 2021 Birribee was part of a consortium shortlisted for the project to redevelop the Argyll Estate in Coffs Harbour. Stage 2 of this procurement process is expected to commence shortly. 
  • In August 2022, we started to manage a further 246 properties across Wagga Wagga, Orange and Bathurst. This makes Birribee the largest recipient of properties under the AHO's Management Transfer Program. 
  • In August 2022, Birribee was part of a consortium bidding for funding under the NSW Government's mainstream 'Core and Cluster' DFV program. We are currently seeking partners to develop bids for the proposed Aboriginal-led Core and Cluster projects. 
  • Birribee is also part of a group expressing interest in the $1.7b Waterloo Renewal Project.
