SUPERCHARGE the region that helps SUPERCHARGE the State


North West Queensland is the State’s powerhouse region, pumping over $5billion in to the economy. Despite the impact of COVID, the region has continued to deliver, particularly through its resources and agriculture sector.  

North West Queensland is an economic powerhouse contributing to Queensland and Australia’s prosperity through the North West Minerals Province, massive and productive agricultural holdings and a burgeoning and stunning outback tourism industry.

North West Queenslanders contribute $176,000 per capita to the national economy compared to $66,000 elsewhere in Queensland.

As a region we consistently deliver despite prolonged droughts, severe floods, high cost of living, inadequate and aging infrastructure, small population centres and global pandemics! That’s because our communities are lifters and are committed to making North West Queensland a region attractive for people and businesses to live, work and invest.

As the eight councils that make up NWQROC, we understand the value of collaboration, we understand our communities and we understand the potential of this region to deliver for the rest of Queensland, especially as we unite and recover from the impacts of COVID-19.

Whilst much good work has been done by all levels of government with respect to policies, plans and strategies, now is the time for regionally targeted action, immediate commitments to, and long term investment in region shaping projects.

WHY INVEST IN THE WEST?:

Take a look at what our Chair and Deputy Chair have to say.


SUPERCHARGE THE REGION

that helps

supercharge the state 

 

Providing increased and long-term funding certainty for our roads network and management of Karumba Port.

Investing in key region shaping water projects and realistic waste management strategies.

Addressing the high cost of energy and substandard connectivity options facing businesses and communities.

Supporting local and regionally based approaches to more productive land management and community liveability initiatives.

Sponsoring regionally based organisations and developing ‘place based’ policies, programs and funding arrangements to best serve the needs of North West Queensland.

About our 2020 State Election campaign 

 

Our Election Platform is not asking to reinvent the wheel, or funding for unrealistic ideas and initiatives. It’s about building on what already exists, what already has been done or what already has been identified.

We seek, and our communities expect regionally targeted action, not just words or promises.

North West Queensland truly is a powerhouse region worth investing in. We look forward to working with the parties contesting the 2020 State Election and sharing with our communities how each will commit to make this region, and in turn Queensland, even stronger.
