A resident of a remote outstation in Western Australia says she wouldn't like to leave her community if Premier Colin Barnett decides to stop funding services.

The Premier has flagged the closure of around 150 remote communities in the state, arguing it can no longer meet their costs after the Commonwealth handed over funding responsibility to the state.

Bunuba woman Justine Brown is from the Kimberley community of Biridu, which has a population of 23.

She says they'll face more problems if they move into a town.
