About the Organisation

The GEO Group Australia is the leading private sector provider of Correctional Facilities and related services in Australia. 

GEO's mission is to provide government with quality cost-effective services, innovative correctional facility operation and the successful rehabilitation of offenders. The organisation strives to ensure that all facilities maintain the highest possible service and operating standards, as evidenced by the numerous accreditations held, from both local and global standards authorities. GEO's highly trained and motivated employees regard the organisation as "an employer of choice".

Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre is located in Wacol, Queensland, 20 kilometres south-west of Brisbane city and is Queensland’s largest correctional centre.

The Centre's primary role is to safely secure male adult remanded prisoners for the period leading up to, and during, their trials. Most days are very busy with several hundred new receptions arriving and prisoners commuting between the Centre and the courts.

Many prisoners at the Centre complete recognised educational qualifications, gain valuable work skills and begin their long journey turning around chronic health issues and long-term addictions. Following their release, we are proud to report that many former Centre detainees have gone on to establish new careers, secure permanent and ongoing work, and live healthier, happier lives which contribute to broader society.
