The Moreton Bay Region is well positioned for future growth. It enjoys an enviable and diverse lifestyle offering, with capital city convenience without the price tag.
Our combined lifestyle and affordability have driven considerable population growth over the last decade, making it one of the fastest growing regions in Australia (ABS, 2020).
Agriculture has been an important part of the local economy, with the region producing 57% of Queensland’s strawberries and 32% of the state’s pineapples as well as prawns, bugs and crabs. While there are opportunities to continue expanding in these areas, there are also new areas to explore including oyster and seaweed production, more intensive agriculture, further value-adding and processing opportunities, and production of a range of food and beverage products.
