Bowen Basin Services provides a range of services to the mining and construction sector.

Strong, positive relationships with mining and construction companies are integral to the future of our community.

Cultural Heritage Management

Bowen Basin Services manages cultural heritage and delivers cultural heritage inductions to those working on the land of the Wiri People along with broader cultural heritage programs.

The aim is to mitigate potential impacts on Aboriginal cultural heritage in relation to exploration and mining activity.

Training and development

Bowen Basin Services delivers training and assessment to both corporate and private clients in a wide range of disciplines for the mining, civil construction, transport, engineering, landcare and conservation and hospitality industries.

We have a provider agreement and Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Registered Training Organisation (RTO) BEST Employment Services and Training.

BEST is a leading labour hire, training and workforce development company in the Mackay-Isaac-Whitsunday Region servicing the mining and construction sector in the Bowen and Galilee Basins.

Bowen Basin Services can conduct training on-site or in-house or at a venue to suit you. We offer flexible times for training including after-hours or weekends by arrangement.

Our training programs include:

  • Section 11 mine training
  • Certificate I in construction
  • Certificate II and III in civil construction
  • Machinery operator tickets
  • Safety courses (first aid, confined space, work at heights etc)
  • Heavy vehicle driver training
  • Certificate VI training and educator (TAE10)


Bowen Basin Services can provide civil construction and earthworks security in remote areas.

We provide local guards on both a temporary and permanent basis. We can offer static guards, covert/overt security investigations, on-site security training, pilot vehicle services and escorts on and off site.

Bowen Basin Services vehicles are modified to comply with mine specifications, ensuring 100 per cent safety compliance.

At Bowen Basin Services our guards are a true reflection of our organisation, with all guards trained to the highest possible standards and regularly completing refresher courses.

Importantly, our supervisors and management hold trainer/assessor qualifications, as well as industrial and occupational first aid and weapons training.

This ensures the highest possible security is provided for your individual project.


Bowen Basin Services offers revegetation programs to the mining industry in order to restore mined land.

Our revegetation program aims to rehabilitate lands and preserve cultural heritage within Wiri traditional country and surrounding regions.

This program offers career opportunities through education and training for Wiri people and other indigenous people in the field of land management and conservation.

Traffic management

Our traffic control manager has 22 years’ experience with private industry and councils, including training staff and running labour hire for traffic control in the Bowen Basin.

He also developed the Traffic Management Program to run 150 head of cattle through the centre of town, across highways, every day for four months, for the movie ‘Australia’.

This involved liaising with Police and Queensland Transport, meeting all the requirements for main road and rural access and running the traffic control training for 100 road maintenance trainees.

Research and development

Bowen Basin Services is actively engaged in research activities. We can manage research projects, including design and planning, participant recruitment, data collection and analysis and reporting.

We can also assist with grant writing and editorial production.

Event management

We have extensive experience in event management across a variety of industries including the higher education sector, health, hospitality, tourism, not-for-profit, IT, retail, construction and agriculture.

We can coordinate a variety of event formats, from academic conferences that incorporate a peer review process for multiple track programs, to client ‘family fun days’ that build strong relationships with customers.

We understand the challenges of putting together a successful event and can ensure that your event will be worry free.
