Gear Up Rocky

Rockhampton is uniquely positioned as the Gateway to Northern Australia and as such is on the junction of major road and rail networks. With proximity to the Bowen Basin and strategic access to the Galilee Basin, Rockhampton is a key service and logistics hub for the coal industry, providing road, rail and air services.

Rockhampton Regional Council through its Economic Development Action Plan is committed to creating a vibrant business environment that is innovative, competitive, productive and prosperous. Our Region has a wealth of small, medium and large businesses that excel in their chosen fields, and we will work together to make sure we are ready for the opportunities provided through supply chain networks in the Region. 

Rockhampton Regional Council’s "Gear Up Rocky" initiative will do just that. From startup entrepreneurs to mining equipment technology and services specialists we are advancing Rockhampton businesses to find their entry point into the supply chain networks throughout our Region.

Rockhampton Regional Council's Advance Rockhampton team are available to support and guide you through opportunities, every step of the way. For more information, visit the Advance Rockhampton website or email the team on
