Building Construction & Maintenance

Council is contracted to provide maintenance for social housing properties in Aurukun.  This maintenance agreement provides employment opportunities for Council employees and also sub-contractors in the Shire.


    Significant road works have been undertaken within the Aurukun Shire in the last 10 years, both within the township itself and Aurukun Access Road. Aurukun Access Road is fully sealed which is an advantage for both community travel and transport of goods in and out of Aurukun. Aurukun Shire Council continues to undertake its own roadworks whenever funds are sourced.

    Workshop & Store

    Council has a centralised depot to accommodate operational civil works staff, materials and plant. The depot is also an unloading point for dry goods transport companies.

    The store facility accommodates the majority of small items for Council operations and construction projects. Some items are stored outside of the Stores Shed. For access to stores or to arrange collection and/or delivery of private freight consignments, please contact Stores on Ph 07 40606849 or Email: Delivery of private consignments does incur a delivery fee which can be referenced on Council Fees and Charges or by contacting Stores staff.
