Defence & Security


The Department of Defence is the largest property and facilities owner in Australia, and works with companies such as WGA to manage, develop and maintain the estate necessary to defend Australia and its national interests.

WGA has a strong focus on delivering infrastructure projects for Defence and Defence industry, with experience across a range of procurement and delivery types unique to Defence.
