Investigation Services

Our investigation service group was originally established in 1994 and is now one of Australia’s leading providers of specialized surveillance and investigation services to:

  • Government departments
  • Insurance companies
  • Legal firms
  • Corporate clients
  • Businesses
  • Individuals*


*We have a specialist private investigator that can talk to you about any personal matters you may have. These include potential infidelity scenarios, sensitive family law issues, and any investigations concerning your family members be it missing persons, locating biological parents or child welfare issues but to name a few.

David King (the owner and lead investigator) has maintained a continuous hands-on (administrative and in-the-field) role over the past 28 years and is arguably the Gold Coast’s most experienced exponent of surveillance techniques, practices and procedures. David oversees each and every matter handled by our investigations group and frequently will work on those matters personally.  David has a high media profile regularly appearing on television, radio and in the print media encompassing newspapers, magazines and online publications.

But the high profile does not make him unreachable – if you call Gold Coast Investigations now he’ll be the person most likely to take your call – no receptionist – no messaging service – just David. With his wealth of experience on all sorts of varying investigation services David will be able to advise quickly and accurately what how the business might be able to help solve your issue at hand. Remember, this is his job – helping you. And the best way to do that in the beginning is to talk to you and discuss potential investigation options. If we can’t help for any reason, he’ll just say so. Yes, we are a business and we do need to make money, but we are also offering a service that is needed – so call on 07 5646 9716 and have a conversation today. It might be the first time you’ve had to use a private investigation service, but it’s not our first.

This personal service is especially important when it comes to relationship matters . We understand the emotion that may be involved and will treat your inquiry with the respect it deserves. There are no silly questions. So if you are a little nervous to call – don’t be. We’ve had the conversation thousands of times before and know how we can help.


Our Investigation Services In The Media

Over the many years we have been carrying our investigations on both the Gold Coast and in Sydney, we have made news numerous times. We are highly trusted as experts among many media outlets including television, radio, print and online. See some of our video clips below, and some older print articles by following this link.  We also have had recent high exposure across the country with regards to a podcast by News Ltd of which more information can be seen on our blog page by following this link

Our investigations services group incorporating Lipstick Investigations, Integral Investigations , Agency99 and now the local office of Gold Coast Investigations continues to provide specialized surveillance and investigation services to a wide variety of different clients and has maintained a strong reputation for quality, cost effectiveness and efficiency.

We provide focused, high calibre and innovative surveillance and investigative solutions and our overall goal has always been to assist our clients in obtaining the timely and accurate information they seek in a cost-effective manner.

The managing director has always maintained a very direct, hands-on approach to all aspects of  our administrative and in-the-field investigation services and we believe it is this expertise that sets us apart from many other agencies.

Whilst some companies (appear to) have multiple offices in various Australian states and flashy “smoke and mirrors” marketing  sometimes seeming impressive, we believe it is the skill and expertise of an agency’s administrative and investigation services personnel that ultimately guides and defines the quality of the work produced. And, we are truly LOCAL!


The best-intentioned business policies are vulnerable if the infrastructure of the business is weak, or sound business practices and leadership are lacking. We continually strive to instill in our staff a strong sense of business integrity, character, relationship, responsibility, cooperation and a passion for excellence in their work product.
