Who are we?

Well, to summarise, we are a bit of a “BCF” kind of crowd really, we are country people that love to get outdoors and be active, spend time with our families, participate in local sporting groups and generally have a good time. Boating, camping, fishing, 4WDing, cars, bikes, river recreation…. We love it!


Company culture

Is there no better feeling than enjoying where you work, working with mates and working together to achieve the big picture!? We are super proud of who we work for, the projects that we achieve and the team that we have! Our retention rate is over 5+ years, testament to the work that we put into our team in an ever-changing and competitive industry.

BEERS Social Club

A great, fun way to get to know the team! Whether it is tea at a local pub, go karting, horse racing, celebrating special events, these events are always fun and are held quarterly. Membership is great value at only $5 per fortnight and we love all of our team to be members.

Wellbeing & Staff Recognition

Aside from social club activities, we hold a number of in-house events, including Celebration Hour once a month, where we stop early and celebrate all the good stuff happening with drinks and nibbles as a team! We also have welcome lunches for new staff and morning teas to celebrate important events or dates such as Movember, Sids for Kids and more.
