Buy Local, By Hedland

Buy local, By Hedland is an initiative coordinated by the Town of Port Hedland in response to the economic fallout of COVID-19. Right across Australia, small businesses are feeling the impacts of mandated closures, particularly across the hospitality and tourism sectors. Once bustling cafes, restaurants and gyms have had to shut up shop for the foreseeable future, as the government seeks to reduce the rate of COVID-19 transmission in the community. For many sole traders, their one source of income has been stopped and they’re facing a tough, uncertain and stressful economic future.

Essentially, Buy Local, By Hedland is a business registration and promotional platform for Hedland based sole traders and small and medium sized businesses. By filling out an electronic form with key details, the Town will then provide promotional support for your business and write a profile which will be published on the Town’s media channels. In particular, we want to highlight how local businesses are adapting to the new environment by innovating their operations to meet the needs of their customer base. The name comes from the desire to encourage local consumption to support local commerce.


Local government authorities across Australia are providing support where possible to their small business communities. Although there are many factors which contribute to financial viability, making sure people are made aware of local businesses and the novel ways they’re reaching customers can help mitigate the worst effects of a potential recession.

In-house skill capabilities at the Town can be utilised during this unprecedented event to help sole traders and small businesses ride out the storm over the next few months.


  • To provide a business promotional support platform to assist in softening the economic hit of COVID-19 in the Hedland community
  • To encourage local spending throughout the duration of the pandemic
  • To provide useful information to businesses throughout the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, such as links to state government grants and resources
  • Where possible, to identify ways to assist registered Hedland based businesses with their marketing and promotional needs


  • Hedland based sole traders with a registered ABN
  • Hedland based small and medium sized businesses with a registered ABN


Simply fill out this electronic form, which will then be submitted to the Town's Communications Team. Before any information is published online, it will be sent back to you for review.

  • Hedland based small and medium sized businesses with a registered ABN

Pet Empire |A small new (4 weeks) Pet Shop in South Hedland |Selling frozen food, Dry food and accessories for Dogs, Cats and Chickens||Hedland Pet Sitting +|Pet sitting and one on one Dog Walks 0401717461

"At the moment, I am desperately trying to keep up with the pet food stocks and start to provide chicken feed as well as people normally go to Karatha for that. At the moment the business is controlled by limiting access and pre orders and me contacting them that their product is in. I have plans that if stricter measures on residents is made, then deliveries will be done. But that I have to wait as that will cost me more than I can afford as having to pay for help and fuel plus the shop rent and expenses. Hedland Pet Sitting: I was a very busy pet sitting business but now I have lost up to 90% of my business due to lack of travel and holidays. However, I am remaining open especially if anyone should become ill and need the hospital or is taken to Perth for any emergencies, their pets are going to be cared for. My dog walking service is still operational in the mornings to walk pets for shift workers, essential service workers, the elderly not braving to go out and the ill. A business scheduled to walk pets lessens the number of individuals out and about all in the morning at the same time."
