We began trading in 1995 as Nullarbor Electronic Publishing and incorporated in 1997. In 2005 the company changed its name to Nullarbor Consulting Pty Ltd to reflect our wider range of services.
The name “nullarbor” is derived from the Latin null arbor meaning “no tree” as we started out in paperless (treeless) publishing.
Nullarbor continues to provide websites and online shop designs, e-newsletter services, social media advice, small business IT training, business writing,image services and IT Support.
In 2012 we moved the network services side of our business, particularly IPV6-related services, under the trading name Into6.
In 2013 we moved the event management and business presentation skills training side of our business under the trading name of StageFlight
