Leading Drilling Contractor in Southeast Queensland

With an experienced team of geotechnical drilling operators and offsiders, Hinterland Drilling has a reputation for fast, efficient, quiet and environmentally sensitive geo-tech drilling. We specialise in difficult ground conditions and terrain that many drilling operations just cannot access. Hinterland Drilling is often called upon to complete drilling projects that others have failed to complete- whether it's drilling for core sampling, geo tech drilling, environmental drilling or anything in between, we can handle it. With one of Australia’s most technically advanced rigs, we relish the opportunity to test our skills on all projects from Highrise construction, residential, civil, quarrying, mining and gas.

Australian owned and operated, Hinterland Drilling’s goal is to provide the right drilling services, paired with our own experienced and certified operators to suit the requirements of your project. Hinterland Drilling can offer robust all-terrain drilling rigs and four-wheel drive support vehicles. In addition to difficult terrain, the Comacchio GEO 601 offers low noise impact making it perfect for operation in residential areas such as recently on Cross River Rail for the Queensland Government. This enables our team to extend our drilling services to some of Australia’s most inaccessible and sensitive regions. From inground instrumentation to world-class drilling contractors, Hinterland Drilling are the team of experts you can rely on.
