Your prompt & friendly plumber


Hi, I’m Nick Risdon and together with my wife Lisa we’re the proud owners of Up A Creek Plumbing based in Tugun on the Gold Coast.

We’re originally from New Zealand and moved to the Gold Coast 10 years ago. We have two awesome, young sons/future plumbers. River is our oldest boy, he is 3 years old and has the best laugh in the world. Rain is coming up 18 months and his cheeky smile lights up everyone around him.

Lisa is the brains (& beauty) of the business. Lisa’s background is in management and marketing and without her this business wouldn’t be here today. Lisa is also really passionate about healthy foods and toxic free living, I think that’s really great... apart from the fact that there’s no cakes or biscuits in the house (well maybe a raw, vegan one *eye roll*).

People have said that I’m the brawn of the business and I know it sounds a bit cheesy but truthfully, I love what I do. I get a kick out of solving problems and having such happy customers that have been with us for so long is the icing on the cake. I like to kite surf (poorly), work out and watch the Warriors lose every week. My favourite thing to do is hang out with my family at the beach.

Lisa & I make a brilliant team and we’re so grateful to be supported by the absolute best plumbers in the business. We genuinely love to make our customers happy and that will show from the very first phone call.
Call us today! We service the entire Gold & Tweed Coasts.
