Australia's largest Aboriginal Contractor

Ngarda is one of the largest contracting companies for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia.


Ngarda began in 2001 as a small mining contractor in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. Since this time, it has grown into a multi-disciplined service provider supporting people in mining, civil construction and infrastructure works across Australia.

We are about providing sustaining growth opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through engagement with the mining and infrastructure sector.  Through delivering competent and cost-effective contracting services to many blue-chip clients, we create real opportunities for local lndigenous participation through employment, training and other prospects for wealth creation.
