Central West Queensland is known for its wide open skies, breathtaking landscapes and warm, dry climate. The region is serviced by major highways, a long-distance passenger rail service and six airports.
This area is home to a multi-million dollar agriculture industry that includes beef, cotton, grain, and fruit production. The sector contributes nearly one-quarter of the state’s total exports, and is part of Queensland’s A$13 billion primary industry sector. The mining and resource sector is a large part of the region’s export industry and is home to a large portion of the world’s lead and zinc resources, as well as large reserves in silver, copper and gold.
