Inland Rail is the largest freight rail infrastructure project in Australia. It will complete the ‘backbone’ of the national freight network, transforming the freight rail system between Melbourne and Brisbane via regional Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, better connecting farms and cities to markets and providing supply chain benefits and substantial cost savings for freight companies and producers.

Queensland will receive the largest investment of the entire program and in the order of 7,000 jobs during the peak construction period.

Scenic Rim Regional Council

The Scenic Rim encompasses 4,300 square kilometres and is geographically in a unique position within the broader South East Queensland region and indeed the State. The region has strong connections to other centres across South East Queensland including Ipswich, Logan and the Gold Coast. The three main centres of Beaudesert, Boonah and Tamborine Mountain act as key service centres for the region and are generally aligned to their main transport linkages. A number of smaller towns provide a depth of character and uniqueness to the region.

The regional economy is diverse in nature and is reliant upon the sectors of agriculture, tourism, key service sectors and construction, which service the ongoing population growth. The region has a vibrant and growing tourism sector including a range of destinations such as Tamborine Mountain, Canungra, Boonah and Kooralbyn Valley, as well as a budding wine, craft beer and spirits industry.

The more traditional agricultural activities remain a steadfast component of the economy with the Bromelton State Development Area (SDA) also accommodating large-scale industries such as AJ Bush and Sons, SCT Logistics, Gelita Australia, Quickcell Technology Products and Council’s waste transfer station. The Bromelton SDA encompasses more than 15,600 hectares of industrial land and has significant potential for future growth, particularly with Inland Rail currently under construction.

In the western portion of the region, vegetables, cattle and dairy farming are the leading industries. The central section of the region caters for manufacturing and industrial activities as well as turf farming.

The Scenic Rim Regional Prosperity Strategy provides clarity to our shared vision for a sustainable and prosperous economy as we look to the future.
