Regional Development Incentives

The Rockhampton Region provides a higher-order retail, services, health and education centre for the wider Central Queensland Region.   The Rockhampton Region has experienced strong residential and commercial development in recent years and Council is continuing to proactively invest in infrastructure that supports growth and particularly development of the Gracemere Industrial Area.

Rockhampton and Gracemere are centrally located to major coal, LNG and infrastructure developments occurring across Central Queensland. The Bowen, Surat and Galilee coal basins are all within 500 km of Rockhampton, making the Region an ideal logistics and services hub for the resources sector.
