Business & Industry

We are committed to exploring the limits of what a local government can achieve for our local businesses – with the vision of becoming Queensland’s most business-friendly economic zone.

Banana region has risen as an economic powerhouse to lead the industries of the future: decarbonised economy, agriculture, food production and processing, resources, energy, renewables, manufacturing, resource recovery and industry.

Banana Shire region’s underlying comparative advantage is its close proximity to neighbouring service centres, a skilled workforce that services existing industry, transport infrastructure, a surplus of industrial zoned land and rich agriculture pastures. Not to mention the region boasts five aerodromes, with one offering weekly commercial passenger flights.

We are proud to open our established region to emerging industries including advanced agriculture and manufacturing, renewable energy, and resource recovery. Our progressive council embraces opportunities that facilitate innovation and economic diversification and welcome collaborative partnerships with government, business, and the private sector.
