North Queensland (NQ)

In 2017 Jason Neilly decided he’d had enough of working for other people, and convinced his brother, Adam, and colleague, Brett, that they needed to start their own Environmental consultancy. From humble beginnings in a site container in Brett’s back yard in Townsville, Neilly Group has grown to be one of the leading Environmental Consultancies in Queensland. With a team of over 15 people and staff based in Townsville, Brisbane, Atherton and Bowen, the company now works throughout Queensland, delivering practical cost effective solutions that achieve real outcomes for clients.

Their technical expertise in environmental water resources, rivers, streams and construction of wetlands, coupled with local knowledge and long-established relationships ensures they deliver outcomes for clients.
