Central Queensland’s Coming Up Aces

By Ray White Whitsunday

Recent reports indicate that the mining sector across the Central Queensland region is experiencing significant growth. This is great news for commercial industries, local businesses and communities as a whole. And it’s not just the mining and infrastructure sectors that are undergoing such encouraging progress. Agriculture and tourism are two other industries that are on the move.

Reports show that the Central Queensland region is now experiencing significant growth across multiple sectors, according to an article published by Central Queensland News.

The Greater Whitsunday Alliance’s Regional Projects Development Register update, released on May 29 2019, has indicated that there are 451 listed mining-related projects that are worth $30 billion in the Mackay-Isaac Whitsunday region alone. That is a whopping $16 billion increase since August last year.

The Isaac region, which already boasts one of Australia’s lowest unemployment rates, is set to explode with another 1500 jobs now that the Adani coal mine has been given the green light.

The Carmichael mine is the first coal basin to be opened in 50 years and offers encouragement of strong prospects with another six mines proposed.

The Australian Mining article dated April 15 2019 indicates the liquified natural gas (LNG) industry annual growth has just hit 93 per cent and is set to double next year.

Exploration in the Bowen and Surat Basins will only strengthen future growth projections with 11 new sites being released and encouragement being given to junior, mid-tier and new entrants to the industry.

And it’s not just mining and infrastructure sectors that are undergoing such encouraging growth.

  • Agriculture – The annual Emerald Show cattle sales had a record-breaking 4600 cattle on offer
  • Regional rainfall – The Central West has seen the best soaking rains in 60 years.
  • Tourism – The industry has seen a 13 per cent increase year on year.

All are positive signs for commercial industries, local businesses, and communities across the region.

Our established Dysart office currently supports many key contractors within the region by providing reliable, quality vehicles that meet the most stringent requirements for each site. However, to extend our level of service and support in the region we’re pleased to announce the opening of our Mackay office.
