Tattarang is the holding company for the Forrest family’s private business interests.

Tattarang is one of Australia’s largest private investment groups and is owned by the Forrest family.

Our investment portfolio spans across agri-food, energy, resources, property, and lifestyle.

The group is made up of five business divisions: Fiveight, Harvest Road, Squadron Energy, Wyloo Metals and Z1Z.

We believe in investing for growth and pursue opportunities in both the listed and unlisted space with a long term investment horizon.

Tattarang is driven by a set of values


Be vulnerable, take risks to trust others.

Courage and Determination

NEGU – we never ever give up.


Go to your leader for advice, not permission.


Be the most positive person in the room.


Support each other, always be kind.


Think of ways we can do things better, faster, cheaper, safer.

Generating Ideas

Always be on the lookout for breakthroughs.


Do what you say you’re going to do.


Look out for your mates and yourself.

Stretch Targets

Always be uncomfortable with your level of challenge.


The group’s name and logo pays tribute to a fiery stallion of the same name that was cherished at the Forrest family’s Minderoo Station in the 1950s.

It signifies the unique bond of trust that is formed between a rider and their horse and the seriousness with which each party invests in caring for and protecting the other.
