NQ Strategy

The Northern Queensland Strategy

Since early 2012, the four Regional Development Australia (RDA) Committees in Northern Queensland - RDA Far North Queensland and Torres Strait, RDA Townsville and North West Queensland, RDA Mackay Isaac Whitsunday and RDA Fitzroy and Central West - have worked collaboratively on a visionary approach to the development of strategic initiatives that will strengthen the future of our large combined region.

This work has involved information sharing, analysis of shared issues and opportunities and work with the Australian and Queensland Governments to support initiatives that help build long term sustainability in Northern Queensland.

In 2014 the four RDA Committees have collaborated on a project to develop business cases for supporting the development of regional roads, agricultural distribution and aviation connectivity.
