People first, always.
The Real Group is a not-for-profit organisation that was formed as a platform for small business to give back to the community, amalgamating the community work of 12 local businesses (including Undamine, Coal Train, The Rocks, Hooked Fishing, The Keppel Barge & CQ Trades & Services) to form one generous community fund. Dedicated to bringing real change by giving back, The Real Group creates jobs, empowers individuals and supports the local region.
The Real Group will continue the traditions of its founders: investing in the communities we work in by employing the disadvantaged, supporting charities, the youth and community organisations throughout Central Queensland. In all that we do, we will continue to put people first, always.
Dedicated to bring real
The Real Group unites a diverse group of highly successful businesses based in Central Queensland – including Undamine, Coal Train, iTrain, The Rocks, Hooked Fishing, CQ Waste and The Keppel Barge – each with distinct strengths and capabilities and a history of community engagement and support. Dedicated to bringing real change by giving back, we create jobs, employing the disadvantaged, empower individuals and support the local region.
By continuing to expand our businesses and employment opportunities by diversifying into new ventures, we can in turn expand our charitable works and support disadvantaged groups.
The Real Group will continue to bring a level of excellence, expertise and growth across our eight companies – including in the fields of training, contracting, private charters and more – while uniting under our guiding principle of people first, always.
In addition to donating money to individuals, services and causes that most affect the people in our local communities, below are just a few of the exciting programs we have implemented.
The Real Group Development Program employs disadvantaged people from all walks of life. Participants receive more than training and physical hands-on experience, they are learning personal development skills and improving their mental health. The aim of the Program is for participants to enter the workforce, learn and display positive adult behaviours, gain independence, learn lifelong skills, increase their employment prospects and increase their sense confidence and self-worth.
