Industrial Park Expands Opportunities

By July 14, 2020 No Comments

Prime real estate is now available for large-scale development of commercial and industrial agriculture services in Mareeba.

Stage 3 of the Mareeba Industrial Park (MIP) Development in Mareeba is now complete and open for business.

The $3.5 million expansion was proudly funded by the Queensland Government’s Building our Regions program and Mareeba Shire Council.

Mareeba Shire Mayor Angela Toppin said the expansion would strengthen Mareeba’s position as an industrial hub for northern Australia.

“The land available at the Mareeba Industrial Park will allow for new businesses to operate out of the hub in areas such as agriculture, transport and logistics, horticulture and manufacturing,” Cr Toppin said.

“The expansion will create job opportunities and boost the local economy.

“I thank the Queensland Government for recognising and supporting regional development in the Mareeba Shire,” she said.

Minister for State Development, Tourism and Innovation Kate Jones said that with the current economic headwinds Queensland must deliver its plan to support jobs now and into the future.

“An essential part of Queensland’s plan to recover is partnerships with local councils, through programs like Building our Regions, that deliver local projects and create local jobs.

Projects funded through Building our Regions, like the Mareeba Industrial Park in partnership with Mareeba Shire Council, create hundreds of construction jobs across Queensland and supports even more future employment opportunities for locals,” she said.

Stage 3 of the development has linked Effley Street and Keegan Street, creating approximately 111,000 square metres of industrial land. Council currently has 28 fully serviced lots available for immediate purchase via tender. For enquiries please phone 1300 308 461.
