About Hoselink

Australia’s #1 Gardening Supplies Company, 100% Australian Family Owned & Operated

Our Story

Hoselink is an Australian family owned and run company dedicated to delivering the best watering experience you’ve ever had. From humble beginnings in 1998, we’ve grown from a small Aussie business run out of one family’s dining room into a thriving company that employs a staff of over 40.

What hasn’t changed during that time is our commitment to providing our customers with a truly exceptional experience. From purchasing Hoselink products from the comfort of their own home to our after sales support, we strive to deliver a watering and shopping experience unlike any other.

So when you purchase Hoselink, you’re not only getting quality products you can count on, you’re becoming part of the Hoselink family.
