Introducing Gate Mate


What’s a Gate Mate, mate?

For over 15 years, Origin has worked alongside farmers and landholders. Through feedback and experience, we’ve learned that staying on everyone’s good side is as simple as following a few rules – like always grabbing the gate.

That’s why we’ve created the Gate Mate. It’s been designed with Queensland landholders to take the guesswork out of gates and help us to be better neighbours. It’s also a friendly reminder that while a property might be “work” to Origin, it’s home – and often a business – to our landholders. There are always two sides to every gate.

Our guide to being a Gate Mate

Once a Gate Mate is in place, it will give Origin the go ahead on whether to leave it open or closed. We have clear processes to make sure that when we go through the gate, we’re doing the right thing by our landholders.
