For more than four decades, Queensland Hire has maintained its position as an industry leader in event hire and infrastructure solutions.

Originating as a small balloon and party shop over four decades ago, Queensland Hire has evolved into a distinguished name trusted by many, including government agencies, councils, universities, music festivals, sporting championships and more. We’ve become the go-to choice for event structures of all sizes.

Our Story

From large Hoecker structures to simple market marquees, our commitment to providing top-tier equipment and services remains unwavering. Our extensive offerings encompass furniture, staging, audio visual, catering equipment, electrical services, and more – all meticulously tailored to bring your vision to life.

Originating in 1980 as Ed’s Hire, a balloon and party shop, we relaunched as Queensland Hire in 2004, and continued to diligently craft a legacy of trust serving over 14,000 satisfied clientele across Queensland and Northern NSW.

Our relentless dedication to exceeding expectations has resulted in successful events of every kind, from weddings, parties, and corporate gatherings – to music festivals, sporting championships, and partnerships with local government agencies and universities.

In the 3 years that I have personally worked with Kristian and the team I have always found them to be professional, honest and very understanding of the nuances that are the nature of events. Queensland Hire have always been able to supply the equipment and infrastructure that we needed and delivered within the specified timeframes for all our events.

No matter the size of the job, the team at Queensland Hire have been fantastic to work with. Whether it's hiring dry bars or installing marquees on campus, they are efficient, reliable, and flexible. Nothing is ever too hard for the team, and they go above and beyond to bring our vision to life.
John Paul College Melanie Scott
It was so awesome to work with you on our event!  I would also like to note that I got feedback from casuals who had interactions with the staff during bump in/out and they all said that the Queensland Hire staff were the nicest people they had worked with.      
Every single person loved the marquee, either being in it or just seeing it here. Thank you so much for working in with us to showcase our fantastic new function area, we have had very successful functions in the marquee over the two weekends.
Kerry, Bulimba QLD Event Manager
I've worked with quite a few exhibition companies during my time in the events industry and I have to say that your [Queensland Hire] staff were outstanding. They were friendly, efficient and went out of their way to assist us without question or complaint.
Brisbane Events Operations Manager
On behalf of the entire Festival team, I would like to thank you and all of your colleagues for helping us make this year’s event a very successful one. We simply could not have done this without you, and you have been not only very efficient in setting up the site (not to mention bumping out!).
Fred, Brisbane Event Coordinator
I can't thank you all enough for the support and professionalism from your company. Your installation manager was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. If it wasn't for him, I don't think my art show would have gone ahead. I had a few problems at my end and he was able to supply what I needed, no questions
Mr. Art Art Director
I just wanted to send a quick email with a massive thank you for provision of hire equipment at the University Luncheon. The event was fabulous, thank you for providing good quality and clean equipment, I really appreciated it!
University of Queensland Director of Events
