Doing business in North Queensland
North Queensland is vast, neighbouring the Northern Territory, the Gulf of Carpentaria, Papua New Guinea and the Great Barrier Reef. Industries include:
- mining and metal processing
- cattle grazing
- marine sciences
- tropical research.
The north has an economy as diverse as its land types, from tropical rainforests and island-studded coasts, to rich mineral deposits in rugged outback expanses, to the fertile highlands and grazing plains.
The land has shaped the cultures and customs of Indigenous communities over many thousands of years, and Indigenous cultures share a unique connection with this land.
North Queensland offers many opportunities for international organisations to invest or for domestic businesses to expand.
The Queensland Government and local governments provide services to promote business investment in the regional centres, including Townsville, Burdekin, Cairns, Mount Isa and Charters Towers.
This guide will introduce you to the benefits of doing business in the various regions in North Queensland, and identify Indigenous business opportunities.
