About Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre and the GEO Group Australia

The GEO Group Australia is the country's leading provider of outsourced correctional services, operating in NSW, QLD and VIC. Our goal is to deliver better corrections, and in doing so, create safer communities.

The Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre has been continually managed by GEO on behalf of Queensland Corrective Services since its opening in 1992. Located in Wacol, just 20 kilometres south-west of Brisbane, Arthur Gorrie is Queensland's largest correctional centre, safely and securely housing over 1,000 adult male remand prisoners for the period leading up to, and during, their trial. 

We measure our success in delivering ‘safer communities’ through our ability to successfully reintegrate the prisoners we release, with corresponding reductions in their rate of re-offending.
