GSL has recently launched our first social enterprise Piranha Mowing FNQ with the aim to assist our school leavers into employment. This project is a unique solution to assist our clients to overcome the challenges in the local labor market here in Cairns and to provide its employees with the financial and personal rewards that employment can offer. Our motto is ‘Real life, Real work, Real wages!

Our Piranha team is fully equipped with mowers, blowers and whippersnippers and ready to tackle the Cairns community’s basic lawn care needs. We offer a prompt and reliable, easy to book service and our able employees pride themselves on their attention to detail.
