Advance Rockhampton delivers and implements Rockhampton Regional Council’s Economic Development Action Plan. Focusing on 10 key industries, Advance Rockhampton is driving forward the region’s long-term economic growth.
Rockhampton Region is uniquely positioned as the Gateway to Northern Australia and as such is on the junction of major road and rail networks. Direct aviation links and freight routes make Rockhampton the key logistics and freight hub connecting the Bruce, Capricorn, Burnett and Leichhardt Highways. Proximity to the Bowen Basin makes Rockhampton a key service and logistics hub for the coal industry, providing road, rail and air services.
The Rockhampton Region is transforming into a major economic and lifestyle hub for the broader Central Queensland Region, and makes a vital contribution to the growth of the Central Queensland. Major opportunities are brewing, and a strong focus is on planing and developing the right strategic opportunities for business to grow.
