Mackay State Development Area: The Path Ahead

Join us on 11 July to gain an in-depth understanding of the newly declared Mackay State Development Area (SDA) and its implications for the region.

Discover how the Racecourse Mill and Rosella SDA aims to diversify the Mackay region’s economy by fostering industrial development including renewable energy and biofutures production.

We have secured Adam Jones from the State Government who will provide an overview of the project, outline the goals and plans for the SDA, and present a timeline for the development scheme’s implementation.

Aletta Nugent from Mackay Regional Council will discuss the Council’s efforts to facilitate the development of industrial land.

Adam and Aletta will join Deniz Mete from Knight Frank Australia for a panel discussion, where he’ll provide insights into the current sales trends for industrial land in the Mackay region.

Explore the potential impact of the SDA on your projects, industrial growth, and future development opportunities, and learn how the Coordinator-General will operate and control activity in the SDA.
