Bunjilwarra Koori Youth Alcohol and Drugs Healing Service is a permanent 12 bed, statewide residential youth rehabilitation service for young Koori people. It is based in Hastings on the Mornington Peninsula and is the first service of its kind in Australia.

Bunjilwarra is available to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people throughout Victoria irrespective of their individual cultural practices, spiritual beliefs and geographic region.

Diston Wastewater Technology installed a sewage treatment plant that is 5.4m deep in the ground to negate the need for a raw sewage pumping station save the client thousands in maintenance and attrition of pumps in the future. Diston also installed an irrigation re-use system.
