History & People

Trevor Luck began operating Aussie Gold in September 1994. Trevor was a mining engineer who wanted a job closer to home – and his four children! Visitors to the family property said our water was amazing and jokingly used to suggest bottling it.

Council approvals took a couple of years, but Trevor persevered and built a small bottling shed attached to the family home. From there, he cleaned each bottle by hand, bottled by hand, delivered them and kept the admin wheels rolling.

Shelley Tickner was our first employee, helping out with the entire process. Shelley’s now our office manager and celebrating 20+ years with Aussie Gold!

From humble beginnings, Aussie Gold has grown to employ 6 drivers, 3 office staff, and 7 factory staff – including 4 family members. Trevor’s legacy continues; his son David & daughter Janette manage day to day operations at Aussie Gold.
