Your new local Cairns plumber.

Updated: Jun 3

Local Cairns Plumber.

We are happy to announce that Oakland Plumbing has relocated to Cairns!

Since we are new to the area, we thought we might introduce ourselves, and share a little about Oakland Plumbing and how we ended up here.

My name is Lewis, and my wife, Fiona, and I started Oakland Plumbing in 2021 after returning to Sydney from The Whitsundays, where we lived for a year.

While in the Whitsundays, I was running the plumbing for a private island and Fiona worked remotely in her job as a marketing manager. With limited access to resources and the mainland, I had to learn how to fix things at short notice and plan ahead for issues. It was a valuable experience that taught me to think on my feet and prepare for the future of the property.

After a year on the island, we decided it was time to head back to Sydney and start a company of our own. We wanted our company to focus on honest advice, great communication, and an excellent standard of work. We started Oakland Plumbing in December 2021 with the intention of being the best local plumber on the North Shore of Sydney - and we might be biased but we think we did pretty well - (you can check out our reviews below).

While we loved our time back in Sydney, it wasn't long before we found ourselves missing the warmth and adventure of Far North Queensland; and so our plans to move back north began.

Why Oakland Plumbing is the best plumber near me.

If you are trying to find a plumber, then look no further than Oakland Plumbing. We offer a full range of Plumbing maintenance services from leaking taps, blocked toilets, and water leaks. We can also handle any larger projects from plumbing systems for new builds to specifically designed solutions to fix whatever plumbing issue you're facing.

We are proud of the high-quality work on every plumbing job. The thing that we prioritize above all else is our customer service. We want to make sure that whatever solution we find is the best for your situation and budget.

We want you to have peace of mind that when you choose Oakland Plumbing, you are getting the best possible service. We want you to be informed about the condition of your plumbing system so that you can make the best decision for your home. We offer free home plumbing inspections, and include free CCTV inspections whenever we perform any drain cleaning jobs.

Free Plumbing inspection

Our free full home plumbing inspection includes a comprehensive checklist that covers all the plumbing points on your property. During this process, we will flag any current issues or areas to be aware of to help you save money on future call out fees, and plan for the future of your home.

We would much rather highlight any issues while we are on-site than wait for a potentially expensive plumbing emergency in the future.

We offer this service to any of our customers while we are onsite handling another job.

If you do find yourself looking for an emergency plumber, give us a call. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Blocked Drain service

Clearing a blockage with a jetter and cctv inspection.

One of the most common plumbing issues is blocked drains. We have invested in the top-of-the-line Jetting and CCTV inspection equipment. You can be confident that our professional plumbers have all the tools and experience to get the job done.

Whenever we unblock a drain, we include a free CCTV inspection. Many other plumbing companies will charge hundreds of dollars for this service. We don't think it's fair to charge our customers to ensure that we have done the best possible job.

When we clear a blockage, we want to make sure that we have cleared every part of it. If you just use a jetter or an eel without CCTV, there is a good chance that you will punch a hole in the middle of the blockage but not clear the whole thing. It will seem like the blockage has come clear but will likely return soon after the plumber has left.

There is also no way to find the root cause of the blockage without a camera inspection. You may have a partially collapsed pipe or multiple areas with tree roots coming through. Without CCTV inspection, you won't be able to know the best next step.

If you need a local plumber in my area, then give us a call.

Gas fitting 

Cairns gas fitting

Oakland Plumbing is your go-to choice for professional gas fitting services for Cairns and the surrounding areas.

Give us a call if you're looking for a gas plumber near me. We have all the experience and knowledge to install and repair any gas equipment for your home. We offer a comprehensive range of services, including installation, maintenance, and replacement, covering all your gas-related needs, from hot water heaters to cooking and heating appliances.

What our customers say.

I could tell you all about every plumbing service we offer but nobody really wants to read about plumbing that much. It would be much more helpful for you to hear from our previous customers.

"Lewis offers a highly professional service. He is prompt, helpful, honest. Such a lovely person too. I highly recommend him"

Lily said

"Lewis helped up solve a big sewage problem that had been lingering for over 3 months. Previous plumbers we'd called out all told us we'd need to open up the road, get council involved etc, which would've costed us a fortune. Within 3 days, Lewis resolved it all, and didn't even have to touch the road. Not only did he do an incredible job, he was also honest, thorough and talked us through everything so we knew exactly what was going on. Super grateful for him and we strongly recommend Lewis for any plumbing needs"

Virginia said

"We had a major problem with our drainage system. Lewis was fantastic, he solved the problem efficiently and provided excellent service. When we have other plumbing needs Oakland Plumbing will be the first place we call"

We are looking forward to getting to know the Cairns community and providing the same great service.
