Since 1983 we’ve been providing reliable earthmoving and civil construction services to landholders, local councils, government agencies and developers across South East Queensland.

Over three decades we’ve proven to our clients time and again that we have the capability and skills to deliver exceptional results. It’s this promise of quality and our open and honest approach to our work that’s earned us a high rate of repeat business. 

As a Lockyer Valley business we place a high priority on working with local suppliers and materials – and we’re proud of that. Our local knowledge and expertise is proven through our long established relationship with local and state government agencies, local businesses and landholders.

Gatton Earthmovers is fully resourced for both large and small projects, offering a team of experienced operators and a fleet of well-maintained plant and equipment.


Our team, led by managing director Brad Hodge, is well-known locally for their quality workmanship and “can do” attitude. We have the experience and ability to carry out a variety of civil works from farm accesses, dams and general clearing to major subdivisions and road construction in a range of conditions from black soil flats to mountainous terrain. 

We are very aware of our Safety, Quality and Environmental obligations and have documented policies and procedures in place. As responsible employers we provide regular training to our staff to ensure they are kept up to date. We aim for Zero Harm on any project we undertake.
