About Economic Development Queensland (EDQ)
Creating places and investment opportunities for Queenslanders to prosper
How we help businesses like yours prosperEDQ is a unique government agency that promotes industrial development across Queensland. We create opportunities by opening up and de-risking land for industrial development, selling it at market price. We understand that large-scale development is complex and offer contracts that allow you to make a thoroughly informed decision to purchase. Plus, we give you the security of having the land exclusively secured for you (as an approved applicant) for the duration of your application and approvals process. So, if you have a project or development in mind, talk to us to find out if we have land that suits your business.
Our PurposeEDQ combines property development with specialist planning functions to achieve our vision of helping Queenslanders prosper. We are part of the Department of State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning, which prioritises economic growth through private sector investment and job creation. EDQ has over 18 locations throughout Queensland, providing land solutions to help retain existing industry and attract new business investment and development in Queensland. The land EDQ develops has been designed to accommodate a wide range of industrial uses including:
- transport and logistics
- resource processing
- mining equipment, technology and services (METS)
- energy and renewables
- food production
- resource recovery
- aerospace and defence, and
