The Walkers are one of the oldest families, if not the oldest family, of plumbers in Australia. It's been more than 140 years since Mark Walker started his plumbing business in Terara.
Christmas was always celebrated early in the morning for the Walker family because it was always a busy time for them, with many Christmas days where at least one of them were called out for a blocked sewer or toilet.
Today the walker family operate and service Nowra and the Shoalhaven region. Two generations Kyle (fifth) and Matt (sixth) are carrying on their family's dynasty and work in the family business, Nowra Emergency Plumbing.
We specialise in providing expert plumbing services for that extra bathroom, toilet, major renovation or new house, or commercial premises.
We provide general plumbing and a 24/7 emergency plumbing service to residents of Nowra and the adjacent towns in the Shoalhaven.
The major part of our work is the installation of the full range of plumbing services for new houses, new units and apartments, as well as catering for a wide range of commercial plumbing services.
