Opportunities for Business

The Rockhampton Region is a natural hub for the future growth and development of Central Queensland with access to great health, education and transport facilities.  With a local population of approximately 120,000 people and double that regionally, the Capricorn Coast/Rockhampton region services a wide area and provides great opportunities for new and expanding business and industry.

The City of Rockhampton is one of two key regional logistical centres outside the southeast corner of Queensland that provides support for health, retail, education, recreation, engineering and major industries that contribute to 7% of the state’s Gross State Product.  Steady population and industry growth in the resources, manufacturing and primary industries sectors is supported by a wide range of retail, health and education services.  These services also support the broader Central Queensland region.

Queensland’s first dual sector university, CQUniversity, provides a strong link between education providers and local industry.  With the opportunities to learn and grow provided by CQUniversity, the Rockhampton Region benefits from a skilled workforce.  The broader service region also provides graduates with the opportunity to develop a great range of skills.
