Established in 1949, Rocky Point specialises in supplying growing media to Horticulture, Agriculture, Revegetation and the Home Garden sectors. On site at our 70-acre facility we produce all of our own compost, along with the preparation and batching of potting mixes, soils, soil conditioners and mulches. All blends are strictly trialled and tested on site as well as externally through a NATA accredited laboratory.

Our on-site bagging and processing plant packages the growing media into bags, ready to be delivered throughout Australia to our network of retailers. Bulk products are delivered by our own fleet of truck and trailers through Queensland and New South Wales. Our vision is to keep growing a healthy and sustainable future for generations to come.


Phoenix is Queensland’s first purpose built environmentally controlled composting facility. The facility features aerated floor composting tunnels in a negative pressure environment where odour emissions are minimised and the conditions for composting are optimised. This makes it ideally suited to accept FOGO and food wastes of all kinds.

Phoenix is also working to develop markets in the agricultural community, through market education strategy forming partnerships with waste producers from the food production and biosolids industries to develop products that are in increasing demand for the health of agricultural soils.
