Greater development certainty for industry with dedicated land to accommodate large and difficult to locate industry Locational advantages including proximity to the Port of Gladstone, major road and rail networks and other supporting infrastructure Greater clustering opportunities for vertically and horizontally integrated industries Streamlined assessment processes under the GSDA Development Scheme for timely approvals Best-practice land use and infrastructure planning through the Development Scheme to promote an efficient use of land, maximised use of assets and minimal land use conflicts A defined process for the Coordinator-General to compulsorily acquire land in an SDA to facilitate economic development.

26 Building a Sustainable Tourism Future 26

27 Building a Sustainable Tourism Future The Southern Great Barrier Reef Region In 2017, almost 2,500,000 Tourists visited Australia s World Heritage Great Barrier Reef contributing A$6 billion to Australia s economy. Over 85 percent of reef tourists go offshore from Cairns, Port Douglas and Whitsundays areas to locations, which make up less than 10 percent of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. With forecasts of a dramatic rise in inbound Chinese tourists over the next decade, visitations to the reef will climb significantly. Anthropogenic environmental impact and best practice management considerations demand that the current concentration of tourists needs to be dispersed more widely. The Southern Great Barrier Reef Region is located 1250km south of Cairns. 27

28 Building a Sustainable Tourism Future The 1770 Region part of the Gooreng Gooreng Traditional Lands The Southern Great Barrier Reef Region is an ideal location for tourism and retirement living investment featuring: The world famous Heron Island and a string of pristine coral atolls and lagoons accessible from the unspoilt coastline of the Town of 1770 and from Gladstone harbour. A section of the Great Barrier Reef unaffected by sediment run-off, coral bleaching, crown of thorns infestation or mass tourism impact. An equitable climate with warm, dry winters, summer temperatures which rarely exceed 30 C maximum and over 250 days of sunshine annually. The 1770 Region - the only place in Australia where you can enjoy the waters of a true surfing beach and explore the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef on the same day. Extensive national parks and recreation reserves which account for over two thirds of the land mass of the 1770 Region a timeless environmental jewel. Inbound Tourism operators would find the above a very attractive Australian Tourism experience. 28

29 Building a Sustainable Tourism Future Over 300 days of sunshine per year (Average hours per day) 29

30 Building a Sustainable Tourism Future Australia s Southern Great Barrier Reef Region 30

31 Building a Sustainable Agriculture Future Water Supply The Gladstone Region is poised to dramatically expand its agricultural potential with the anticipated development of the $352 million Rookwood Weir on the lower reaches of the Fitzroy River the second largest river system in Australia. Information on crop suitability for land capable of being serviced by the Rookwood Weir can be obtained from the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries. Suitable crops include: Macadamia nuts: suitable land for trickle irrigation; Orchards: suitable land for trickle irrigation (e.g. citrus trees); Sorghum: suitable land for furrow irrigation; Wheat: suitable land for furrow irrigation and spray irrigation; Navy beans: suitable land for spray irrigation; Soya beans: suitable land for spray irrigation; Peanuts: suitable land for spray irrigation; Grapes: suitable land for trickle irrigation; State and Federal Governments are now engaging in a range of negotiations to determine the future commercial, construction and operating arrangements for the project. 31 COMMITTED DEVELOPMENT OF THE $352m ROOKWOOD WEIR THE FITZROY RIVER 2nd largest RIVER SYSTEM IN AUSTRALIA

32 Building a Sustainable Agriculture Future Transport Connectivity Both the Australian and Queensland Governments, through several programs, are making significant contributions to the upgrade of regional roads and rail lines in Queensland with a primary focus on getting products to national and international markets quickly and efficiently. In an effort to move agricultural products onto rail, the Department of Transport and Main Roads have invested in the development of approximately 80 cattle transport containers that can be put onto flatbed rail wagons. The replacement of five bridges which is underway on the Dawson Highway between Biloela and Gladstone will allow current weight restrictions to be removed enabling b-doubles and road trains shorter and faster access to Gladstone, thereby increasing agricultural freight efficiency and costs. The Gladstone Port Access Road Extension is a project listed under Infrastructure Australia. This extension will provide for safe and efficient b-treble access into the Port Central precinct of the Port of Gladstone. The Federal Opposition made a commitment in March 2018 to provide $100 million to fully fund the construction of this vital intermodal link. 32 COMMITMENT TO PROVIDE $100m TO FUND CONSTRUCTION OF GLADSTONE PORT ACCESS ROAD EXTENSION DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORT AND MAIN ROADS INVESTMENT IN APPROXIMATELY 80 CATTLE TRANSPORT CONTAINERS FOR FLATBED RAIL WAGONS
