We have worked on dredging projects, bulk excavations, reclamation projects and more all around Australia.


Bonelli Plant Hire is extremely proud to have been a part of several notable projects around Australia. We started out assisting multi-national dredging companies with sand dredging from Moreton Bay in 1981 on the Brisbane Airport Upgrade. Since we have worked on the Tweed River Entrance Sand Bypassing Project, Brisbane Port, Sydney's third runway managing the land reclamation and the enormous and challenging Gladstone Western Basin Project with a total dredging volume of 25 million m3. Our latest project in late 2018 was the successful delivery of the land reclamation on the Sunshine Coast Airport expansion ahead of time.

Bonelli Plant Hire has a long history of providing multinational companies with our land reclamation expertise that spans generations. For almost the past 40 years Bonelli Plant Hire has been providing this service Australia wide.
