17 years of Joomla experience

Few organisations have Webplace's level of Joomla experience. 17 years ago Directors Michael and Cameron worked for Mambo, the Content Management System that forked into Joomla. Webplace provides the same leading Joomla web development services today alongside a full service digital offering that solves real business problems through customer understanding and award-winning digital design. We're based in Melbourne and all of our work is done here too!

Why Joomla Content Management System?

  1. Lean, fast & secure

    Joomla can be built to your specifications with minimal code bloat, which makes maintenance in the future much simpler

  2. Well-suited to customisation

    Other CMS’es can be customised of course, however we’ve found they’re more complex and costly to build and manage than Joomla

  3. Flexible

    Joomla has an extensible architecture that allows for new components to be built and added into the system without any issues to the existing system

  4. Suitable for websites of all sizes

    Large websites for Government and corporate organisations as well as smaller websites

We needed a digital agency to work *with* us. We're more than happy with the results and would definitely recommend Webplace to any organisation after digital solutions that work.

Webplace were more than a vendor in our website project, they were a true partner that guided us through the process from start to finish. The team were a joy to work with and navigated difficult conversations with patience and professionalism.

Not only were the Webplace team a joy to work with, but the results of the project have been met with great acclaim from our staff, our users and the public. We cannot recommend Webplace highly enough and are thrilled to have partnered with them.

Joomla web development and design projects


Webplace have been a digital partner to Telstra since 2008. In that time we have worked closely with them to produce 40+ Joomla based websites for a variety of business and user requirements.


Webplace helped Lauriston when their provider at the time simply didn't have the Joomla experience. That was in 2015 and since then we've formed a very strong partnership.


Launched in 2017 GWMWater can manage the data for reservoir levels, outages, tenders, water treatment levels as well as a second site. The site is fully responsive and WCAG compliant.
