Expanding Aboriginal contracting and consulting services through utilising social procurement.

Muru Mittigar’s ‘Caring for Country’ approach applies integrated methodologies to complex environmental, cultural and social issues. Aboriginal people have a responsibility culturally to Care for Country and Muru Mittigar considers this an integral part of our approach.


Muru Mittigar is a contracting social enterprise changing the way our land is managed. Our unique model of traditional land management practice adopts industry-leading use of technology. We deliver across diverse specialty areas and achieve social and workforce development outcomes.

Our Caring for Country Division allows stakeholders such as land managers, mining groups, land holders and government to outsource their environmental and community projects to a solutions-focused organisation. Our focus is to provide a maximum return on stakeholder investment.
