O’Brien Electrical Cairns Central (formerly Starr Electrics) has been a mainstay in the Cairns electrical sector for over 40 years. Owned since 2007 by Dan and Trish Elsden and now rebranded in 2019, O’Brien Electrical Cairns Central has the well-earned reputation of providing expert electrical installations, repairs and maintenance services to clients in the domestic, commercial and industrial sectors.

Far North Queensland locals, Trish and Dan have maintained focus on the electrical services and products most valued in the region. Recognising the difficulty in easily and consistently sourcing high quality, dedicated trade services which are delivered with an unmoving commitment to superior work outcomes and the highest of satisfaction levels, Trish and Dan have devised and introduced procedures and policies to set the standard for the Cairns regional market.

Keen to assist small to medium-sized enterprises to improve cost-effectiveness and reduce costly downtime caused by electrical faults and outages, we partner with commercial property managers and owners to assess the most appropriate electrical systems, plans and services which would improve costs and optimise outcomes for both tenants and owners into the future.
