Community Champion

Arid Land Communications are champions for our community...we fiercely promote and are proud to show off our little city to the world.

We strongly believe that this part of the world is special, from the beauty of the Flinders Ranges, Spencer Gulf and the scrubby desert that surrounds us, to the people themselves that make this community.

The local Aboriginal people have a special affinity with the land, having the oldest continuous culture in history and count Port Augusta as a very important meeting place, at the head of the beautiful, warm Spencer Gulf, on the edge of the desert in one of the driest parts of the earth.

Port Augusta IS special and we want to share it with you.


Arid Land Communications is proudly based in Port Augusta South Australia.

In a small rural city of around 15000 people, it's important that we make our customers happy...we live in the community and do minimal advertising.

Much of our work is repeat business and word-of-mouth.

Since commencing trading in June 1998, we have travelled all over South Australia and, on occasion, worked interstate as well.

Our staff have families, own homes, spend their money in our community and participate in the life of the community through service clubs, sports teams, schools and churches.

Work experience

Several times every year, we are approached by students seeking Work Experience in our industry...often they don't have any idea of Telecommunications and are more inclined to Electrical or Computer's a standing point of contention that practically every young person with a leaning to technology wants to be a computer programmer...a very competitive area with few opportunities.
We pride ourselves on being involved in the actual nuts-and-bolts of the industry, providing the base infrastructure of the IT industry through cabling and phone systems.
Students normally go away with a new appreciation of our job and, in a lot of cases, a desire to chase it further.
One of our techs and our apprentice are both products of School Based Work Experience.

Equal opportunities

We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We do not tolerate discrimination in any form and have employed staff from a range of different countries. We also ensure that our staff are treated with respect by our customers.
When you employ Arid Land Communications, our people will treat you and your staff with the utmost respect at all times...and we expect you will treat us in the same manner.
We reserve the rights of our staff to be treated fairly and they have the choice to leave any site where they feel that hasn't happened - and we will back them up on this if appropriate.
As equal opportunity employers we have, over the years, employed people from all over the world, and have 3 female employees including a part-time technician.
