Darling Downs Regional Economic Recovery Plan

Darling Downs

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 Darling Downs has some of Queensland’s most productive and resource-rich terrain, with prime agricultural land in the east stretching to the cattle farms of the outback in the west.

Our continued investment in transport infrastructure in the Darling Downs will help cement its role as a major transport and logistics hub for the state. There are also opportunities for the region to harness new technology and renewable energy to build a prosperous future.
