Mackay-Whitsunday regional economic plan

Mackay-Whitsunday Regional Economic Recovery Plan


Our vision for Queensland’s recovery from this pandemic is threefold—we are working to protect the health of every Queenslander, we are creating jobs, and we are working together to create the conditions for future success.

Our regions are the key to building Queensland’s economic recovery. It has taken a collaborative effort from every region to shape our plan for the future. We will continue to partner—with governments, industries, businesses and communities—to navigate this new world for future growth.

The greater Mackay-Whitsunday region boasts the tourist drawcards of the iconic Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands. The region is resource-rich with coal mining establishing it as an economic powerhouse for the State.

Our investment in transport, energy and water infrastructure will build resilience in the greater Mackay-Whitsunday region and support jobs growth and economic recovery.
