Hard Yakka was founded in the 1930s during The Great Depression by David K. Laidlaw as a supplier of durable workwear. The company name is derived from an Aboriginal word for “hard work.”
Initially located in his parents’ house in Brunswick, Victoria, the business continued to grow and was able to open a new manufacturing facility in Sunbury. With a renowned reputation for quality, the company has continued to expand over the decades.
They have now added lines of footwear, women’s wear and various styles of popular clothing (including the new range of zip side safety boots) to their popular range. Synonymous with hard work and durable, quality clothing, Hard Yakka is one of the largest workwear suppliers in the Southern Hemisphere.
Ordered some footwear online and they arrived earlier than expected. Staff are very friendly and professional no issues highly recommended.

Awesome service and a pleasantly surprising collection for women’s workwear. I suggest coming here instead of the large workwear franchise stores as you will get amazing service and a great range of women’s PPE (despite the store’s small size).

Friendly service, with a good knowledge. Only downside was range of stock in-store, but if you know what you're after they will order it in for you, so not such a biggy.

They're not a mega-store and as a customer you'll only benefit from that. Superior service, knowledgeable staff, and great product. The kind of family-owned place you keep going back to.

Best workwear store in Perth, best service and knowledge by far. Got fitted for steel toe boots and the guy knew exactly how to help and get me the best boot for my foot. Loving the new boots they are so comfortable. Will definitely drive the extra 10 mins to come here all the time.
