Gopher Directional Drilling Services was formed over fifteen years ago, specializing in horizontal directional drilling.

In April 2007 Murphy Drilling Pty Ltd took ownership with a view to expand and diversify operations. Over time we have developed a particular expertise in underground infrastructure.

To support this work a 2009 Vermeer D24x40II Series Navigator Directional Drill, with 250 metres of drill rods and rock tooling and a 2010 Ditch Witch 3020 All Terrain Directional Drill with full rock capabilities were purchased.

We also have a 3 hydro vacuum excavation trucks ranging in size from small/medium to extra large.
