BushTel is a Northern Territory Government website that has been in existence for around 20 years in one form or another. It was designed to house relevant information relating to remote Aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory to assist government officials to understand where the locations of these communities were and basic information about them. In 2016, the Northern Territory Government committed to revamping the BushTel site to be a maintained and become an information portal to common information relating to remote Aboriginal communities. In January 2017 a revamped BushTel site was relaunched to provide additional information and resources for government and non-government agencies looking to engage and deliver services in remote Aboriginal communities. As part of the government’s original commitment, continued development and enhancements are being undertaken in line with government objectives and in response to user feedback. In the coming year the site will allow users greater interaction with each community profile through the use of crowd sourcing to assist in maintaining currency, the introduction of an interactive map that visually identifies homelands and the “hub and spoke” theory while also looking to provide greater “story telling” of the Northern Territory and the Aboriginal communities

Brett is currently the Director – Remote Information and Coordination at the Northern Territory Government Department of Housing and Community Development, he is Darwin born and raised and has been working in the remote space for around 15 years regularly travelling to remote Aboriginal communities. He played a key coordination role for Working Futures Policy, Remote Service Delivery National Partnership Agreement including Local Implementation Plans and the Stronger Futures NPA. Brett was also a lead in developing the departments Remote Engagement and Coordination Strategy.
