History

Established by Daniel Tucker in 1995, Carey is the most successful 100% Indigenous owned business in Australia.

The name Carey was inspired by Lake Carey, a large inland salt lake, south of Laverton, Western Australia. The lake had been used for thousands of years by the traditional Wongatha people for maintaining traditional cultural practices.

Carey’s original contracts were located in the Goldfields Region of Western Australia but now extend to the Pilbara Region and the Northern Territory. Carey was established at a time when Indigenous businesses and Indigenous entrepreneurs were a scarcity. Carey was a pioneer of sorts and has now evolved into a thriving business with more than 20 years’ experience in delivering specialist services to the mining and civil industries.

Carey is a unique firm that prides itself on valuing people as our most important asset. Carey’s cultural sensitivity and awareness are important factors in developing sound working relationships with local communities in remote and regional Western Australia.
