Ingham Drilling's branded drilling truck used for water bore drilling in Cairns

40 Years’ Experience Providing Drilling Services in Queensland

Since 1978, Ingham Drilling has been providing a wide scope of expert drilling and water boring services in Cairns and beyond. We work with all residential, commercial, industrial, and rural clients throughout Far North Queensland, from Port Douglas, down to Ingham and beyond.

Since our beginnings, Ingham Drilling has gone on to forge a great reputation in the water drilling industry, under the guidance of owner/operator, Norm Bliesner – a Class 3 licensed driller. Ingham Drilling is your leading bore drilling company in northern Queensland.

Relocating to Cairns in 2005, Ingham Drilling went on to expand its portfolio, adding environmental drilling and borehole monitoring and exploration drilling to its scope of works.

Our field staff constantly update their individual competencies, safe work practices, risk assessment and management training in line with industry regulations, as well as Ingham Drilling’s own very high standards.

Some people say that drilling fluid flows in Norm’s veins. He has been involved in the drilling industry since 1968 when he began as a driller’s offsider with the (then) Irrigation and Water Supply Commission.
He holds a Class 3 Driller’s Licence and the expertise he has gained over a 40-year period in the drilling industry is extremely valuable in his own business and in the consultancy field. He has been a member of the Australian Drilling Industry Association for over 20 years.
