Our Company Aims

Our aim at The Hydrocentre, is to keep you smiling, and help you with whatever your hydroponics desires may be. If you’re unhappy with one of our products, let us know. We’re here to help you get the most out of your hydroponic systems and hydroponic kits.

We look forward to being a part of the Gold Coast hydroponics community for many years to come, and we welcome you to drop by our store!

Learn About Our Friendly Team


Scott grew up in a horticultural family, left the family nursery and has been running hydroponic shops since 1991. Apart from hydroponics and getting a kick out of happy customers, he is a dad with 2 teenagers (yep...), races Formula Vee and plays guitar and keyboards. A long time ago, Scott’s application to become a Qantas pilot was rejected. Lucky for us all!  


Kyle is our Horticulturalist and hydroponics system master builder. He loves his animals and getting out and exploring the world. We love having him at The Hydrocentre, and think he’s one of the most genuine people you’ll ever come across!


Xanthe is one amazing lady and a truly talented artist! Xanthe created all the artwork for our website, and we rate her up there with Picasso. If she’s not creating cool art, she’s riding her bike, driving her ute or looking after her fish, her carnivorous plants and hydroponics systems.


Zane joined us in 2019 and is an avid gardener, loves Hydroponics and helping people. Zane has a quick wit and likes to keep up the humour. When he isn't here he's with his family and has a young daughter that is training her Dad to do exactly what she wants! Zane is the type of guy who always has your back.
