MEEDAC (Midwest Employment and Economic Development Aboriginal Corporation) was incorporated in May 1997 by the community members of Mullewa to operate a CDEP (Community Development Education Program). The community elders were concerned that there was no meaningful employment and training opportunities for their people. Due to the community demands within the region MEEDAC Inc. increased its CDEP and developed activities in Morawa, Yalgoo and Three Springs as well as remote communities such as Kardaloo, Barrel Wells, Mt Wittenoom, Nabawa and Pia Wadjarri.
MEEDAC’s first big CDEP project was Redland Roses which then expanded to include cutting flowers which were sold to retail outlets within the region.
Inspirations is a 15 room Motel with its own café, function room and restaurant situated an hour inland of Geraldton, located in Mullewa.
The building was completely renovated approximately 6 years ago and is now open and bright, with all rooms having their own ensuites. We have rooms to accommodate everyone with single, twin, deluxe, mobility and a family room.
