Wards Painting and Decorating Service has been operating in and around Darwin since 1996. Locally family owned by Kate and Wayne Worden, Wards Painting provides a high quality painting and decorating service across the residential, commercial and new construction sectors.

Not only do Wards Painting guarantee their work, they can give you decorating advice before you decide on your full project guidelines. This includes providing advice on colour schemes, feature walls, decorative membranes, waterproofing, mould retarding, cool roof applications and brand choice.

Wards Painting can also undertake minor repairs to all kinds of damaged surfaces including ceilings, walls, doors, door frames, and skirting boards. With a small team of hard working and qualified painters, you will be glad you gave us a call.

No job too big or small.


  • No problems . If you want a great job with no hassles ( and in this fast pace world who doesn’t)  use Wards Painting. When a lot is riding on the job being finished on time and to a high standard Wayne is the only one I call.

  • In 2013 I had the exterior of my house repainted and used Wards Painting and Decorating as I worked with his partner. For me that was as good a reason as any, as I knew from previous experience that just because a company was well known they didn’t necessarily offer a better quality service. From the outset, I was impressed. He was meticulous in his preparation which required lots of scraping and preparing the surface – perhaps longer than he anticipated, but he did not take any short cuts. He was extremely tidy, cleaning up at the end of every day.

    A year on, I am still happy with the job and have no hesitation in recommending Wards Painting if you are looking for a professional painter, who clearly takes pride in his work.
