Water Parks & Splash Parks

Bringing Fun to Kids all over Australia

We’re proud to say we have installed Splash Parks in most remote communities of Far North Queensland. These parks have not only provided a safe area for children to escape the heat and crocodiles but also have had a positive impact with several health benefits.

Our Water Park and Splash Park expertise has taken us all over Australia, building for luxury holiday locations in NSW and VIC and for local council public facilities in QLD from Brisbane to the Tip of Australia.
The satisfaction of seeing the children enjoy the water slides, large tipping buckets of water and the endless interactive water play fun is definitely rewarding at the completion of the job.

The entire project was seamless from earthworks to turning on the water.

Experience is what Counts

You won’t find a more dedicated team with experience in delivering quality aquatic projects ranging from public Olympic pools to multi-functional aquatic centres. Some of our past projects have required full refurbishments of historical facilities to meet Heritage listings strict guidelines.

Kirratech teams know how to deliver quality projects, in a timely and professional manner. With our team of industry trained professionals, we have expanded from Cairns North Queensland to now delivering aquatic projects nationally. From major Australian cities to the remotest areas in Australia. No location too far or landscape too difficult.

Our portfolio of completed projects show innovation and problem solving for complex design issues bringing state of the art aquatic centres to life. Hydro-therapy pools, hotel and resort pools, public and school pools as well as major refurbishments are all within our scope of expertise.

View Past Projects

This is our second major project with Rick and the boys. His design and construct was spot on every time.


Our growth has primarily stemmed from word-of-mouth recommendations.

We’re proud to say our loyal customers have often built pools with us more than once.

That’s the 100% satisfaction we will always leave our customers with.

Director Richard May

Richard May


Hey I’m Rick May, I am born and raised in Cairns and have been a part of the pool industry for over 30 years. After becoming the director of Kirratech Lifestyle Pools in 2000 i've strived to expand and develop Kirratech to the large scale commercial construction business it is today.

I have a strong belief that attention to detail is the key to success and a job completion hinges on the customer being satisfied.

Business Director by day drag racer and car fanatic by night. If I’m not racing for Mayhem Drag Team, I’m out on the lake or quad riding with my mates.

“Business can be a battle, but when you learn to stop fighting and focus on maintaining and forming relationships business becomes more about the people you interact with and achieving satisfaction from the completion of a project and less about monetary values”.

Business Manager Nicola

Nicola May

Business Manager

Hi, I’m Nikki May, I’m a born and raised Brissy girl, but I have been living in the Cairns district for over 25 years. I have recently taken over the responsibility of Business Manager for Kirratech. With 30 plus years’ experience in business administration some might say I’ve been preparing for this role for a while.

In my spare time I enjoy tapping into my creative roots which can range from fashion design to interior artistic expression.

I am grateful to work with a team full of such great comradery. If I could make one suggestion it would be to implement a ‘bring your dog to work’ day.

Maintenance Manager Jeff

Jeff Colyer

Maintenance Manager

Hey I’m Jeff, I’m a homegrown Cairns boy, and the longest employed member of Kirratech as I’ve been part of the team for over 20 years. My role has developed and expanded over the years from a pool technician to now being the sole electrical technician and maintenance manager. I’m known to be Mr allrounder, from completing maintenance tasks and repairs to being the storeman on a Saturday morning.

I love going camping, fossicking and surfing but most of all I love spending time with my two beautiful daughters.

I believe that the true test of a man's character is what he does when no one is watching.

Administrator Director Nikita

Nikita Zammataro

Administration Director

Hey I’m Nikita, I was born and raised in Mossman to a large Italian family with 3 brothers, so communicating with males has been a skill I have developed from a young age . I’ve had extensive experience in accounts management as I began working for my family business in Mossman, Zammataro Plumbing at a young age and lets just say I've picked up some tricks of the trade along the way.

After a long days work the best thing is coming home to my little pug Quad. If Nikki petitioned to have “bring your dog to work day” lets just say I wouldn’t hesitate to sign it.

Construction manager bryan

Bryan Wattingham

Construction Manager

Hey I’m Bryan, my role is to manage and run our commercial projects under the external directions of Rick. I most recently managed the Tobruk Memorial Baths Townsville redevelopment.

I enjoy metal detecting and driving my old Mitsubishi Triton. The boys say I come up with some interesting theories and ideas but hey sometimes they even work, which is a bonus.

Construction supervisor mitchell

Mitchell Hall

Construction Supervisor

Hey I’m Mitch, I have been living on the Atherton Tablelands and Cairns my entire life and have been working with Rick and the boys for almost 7 years. I started as a concreter in the construction team but over the years I transitioned to a construction supervisor where I now manages a range of staff and tasks.

I love focusing on developing my fitness as it allows me to tackle new physical challenges, and go on adventures to some amazing natural wonders of North Queensland. Though on a nice clear day there's nothing better than hitting than taking my road bike for a ride.

My favorite quote is, “be stronger than your excuses” as excuses are what hold you back from success.

Plumbing Supervisor Paul

Paul Williams

Plumbing Supervisor

Hey my name is Paul but everyone calls me Wilba, I was born and raised in Cairns which is where I completed my Plumbing apprenticeship. I’ve obtained extensive experience in the trade of plumbing and now more specifically the pool industry. I have also taken it apon my self to be the con But more importantly he is a key aspect of Kirratech Team, from his light hearted attitude to his ability to make anyone laugh its always a good time when Wilba around.

He prides himself on being a bit of a chief and enjoys recreation exercise.

“Not too bad” and “just chill lad” were created and now dedicated to our one and only Wilba.

Marketing Manager Kenzi

Kenzi Georgia

Marketing Manager

Hey I’m Kenzi the youngest member of the team, my job includes a range of marketing and social media managing tasks as well as being the office ‘errand girl’. I have been known as the Kirratech Paparazzi, so if you’re camera shy I promise you it will not stop you from featuring on the Facebook Page.

When I'm not reporting on the Kirratech Shenanigans you can find me running a muck with my friends and playing Hockey.

“Opportunities are at the whim of chance, it's all about being in the right place right time, so when an opportunity presents itself its usually meant to be”.

Site supervisor Rolly


Site Supervisor

Hey I’m Rolly. I've been with Kirratech on and off for many years now, working on a variety of projects ranging from local domestic jobs to commercial interstate jobs and even our international project in PNG.

My interests include fishing and spending time with close mates.

Site supervisor Rangi


Site Supervisor

Hey I’m Rangi, I'm a bit of an all-rounder. Throughout a project, it's likely that I will be involved in pretty much all the stages from concreting to tilting and even the equipment clean up at the end; “I set up a mean car wash bay”.

When I'm not at work I enjoy cracking a cold one with the boys, fishing and spending time with my young fella.

Construction Crew Member Terry


Construction Crew

G’day I’m Terry I’m a part of the Kirratech construction crew and have been for a few years now. I have worked in the construction industry for over 30 years in a variety of trades so I’ve been able to learn a variety of ways to do stuff.

My favourite things to do are travelling, gym and spending time with friends and family. The best bit about my job is getting to visit some remote and exotic locations across Australia.

Our supervisors and construction professionals are all valued members of our team. You will have peace of mind that you are dealing with one of our long term, full time professionals.


Our feedback shows that we are winning the hearts and minds of our satisfied customers.

In 2017, Rick and his team from Kirratech Pools were engaged to build a large Vortex water park and splash pad feature in our holiday park in Kiama. From the beginning we found Rick to be very professional in his approach to this project. His advice and expertise was invaluable, which greatly reduced our stress in delivering our water park on time and within budget.

Kiama Holiday Park

We were so impressed with their service, in 2018 we're-engaged their services to demolish our existing pool and build a modern multi-pool complex that better met our customer's needs. Once again Rick's advice in the planning, engineering skills in the implementation and completion of our resort pool was brilliant. His team worked extremely hard, in any type of weather, not only building a beautiful pool, but also doing any landscaping or fencing necessary.
