Learn more about our Australian Operations


With the Australian Operation based in Goulburn, New South Wales, Aviagen Australia employs a team of 150 who work across a variety of sites locally, as well as at smaller bases in Wellington, Bowral and Wagga Wagga.

Even though the team is spread across four locations, what they have in common is state of the art facilities including a modern hatchery, breeding complexes and a new quarantine facility to work in and a strong team culture that binds them.


True to the Aussie way of life, the culture at Aviagen Australia is relaxed, but its people are passionate, committed and genuinely excited about the industry they work in. The team enjoy excellent training, support and prospects that a career with Aviagen provides. In turn they are rewarded with fulfilling roles that can see them advance through the company and for some, can take them around the world.

What makes Aviagen Australia different from other employers is the way they seek out and recognise talent. Aviagen has a reputation as an industry leader in technical training, so recruitment focuses on potential recruits with the aptitude and attitude that best fits the company culture. The company has an excellent reputation for looking after good people really well – people’s growth is as supported as business growth at Aviagen.


Many of those good people get to base themselves in the picturesque town of Goulburn, located 195 kilometres south-west of Sydney and 90 kilometres north-east of Canberra in New South Wales. Considered the oldest inland city in the state, Goulburn is naturally home to many historic buildings and boasts a rich history.  The tightknit, loyal community enjoys all the benefits of small-town living perched on the doorstep of two major cities so people can easily enjoy the best of both worlds. Those benefits include short commutes, affordable property and safe, family- friendly living, not to mention the wide range of recreational choices on offer.

Others reside in the Southern Highlands, one-hour south of Sydney, and others are based in Wellington – a country-based town located between the major regional cities of Dubbo and Orange.

The combination of working with a fast growing, world class product, the unique culture of Aviagen and the best of Australian living, makes working for Aviagen Australia an easy choice.
