This companies foundations were forged by Paul Wonbon who was a member of the stolen generation. After his removal from his family he was sent to the Carnarvon mission at the age of 6. During his time in Carnarvon he developed a passion for the transport industry from observing the trucks from Gascoyne Trading who he would later go on to work for.
Paul started his truck driving career at Minderoo station in the Pilbara before returning to Carnarvon to drive the trucks he dreamed of driving as a child. After 25 years of service with Gascoyne and having taught four of his sons to drive he bought his own prime mover and traded as a subcontractor, Trading as Bunjima transport until his passing in 2009.
To his family he was a role model and his passion for operating machines was taken up by his children, where they all continued in the transport and mining industries , equally continuing to build their own successful careers with the worlds biggest mining companies operating the worlds biggest pieces of mining equipment.
In early 2021 Darren Morris decided to leverage on the skills he has gained from his extensive career within mining and follow his dream in becoming entrepreneurial as his father was when he founded Bunjima Transport.
Having worked with Mikaela previously, Darren recognized his sisters professional acumen, determination and work ethic to align with the business goals of Wonbon.
In June of 2021 Wonbon entered into a commercial agreement with a Western Australian Manufacturing business to launch a product offering to the market.
