The Bromelton State Development Area (SDA) promotes economic development by providing for the growing demand for greenfield land in South East Queensland which is suitable for medium to large scale industrial activities of regional, State and national significance.

With access to the standard gauge rail network along the Sydney - Brisbane rail corridor, the SDA is an ideal location for industries, such as freight and logistics operations, to access intrastate and interstate markets.

Declared in 2008 and totalling about 15,610 hectares, the Bromelton SDA is located within the Scenic Rim Regional Council area, approximately 6 kilometres (km) west of the Beaudesert township and 75 km south of Brisbane.

The SDA is divided into six land use precincts and one sub-precinct ensuring high impact, difficult-to-locate and rail dependent industries are appropriately located and buffered by other industrial and rural land uses. Approximately 1800 hectares of the Bromelton SDA is anticipated to be developed for industrial uses.

The Bromelton SDA development scheme
