The Queensland Government facilitates, manages and delivers high priority and complex infrastructure and property development projects. Through this work the government is driving economic development through property and infrastructure partnerships which help optimise investment and development opportunities across the state.

The Major Projects Office and other business units within the department, such as Economic Development Queensland (EDQ), facilitate and deliver these projects and developments with a focus on strengthening the economy and supporting communities.

Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games™ venues

In a joint partnership between the Queensland Government, City of Gold Coast and the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation (GOLDOC), the department is project managing the delivery of venue infrastructure associated with the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games™.

Overall, total venue infrastructure for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games™, including the Commonwealth Games Village, will generate an estimated $2 billion into the economy and up to 30,000 full time equivalent jobs.

Gold Coast Hospital site

The Gold Coast Hospital site at 98 Nerang Street is currently being demolished. Demolition of the hospital will free up the site for new commercial development opportunities within the Southport Priority Development Area.

Integrated Resort Developments

In 2013 the Queensland Premier announced the government's intention for two Integrated Resort Developments (IRD) in regional Queensland with two casino licences on offer. Such developments can support major events and reinvigorate key locations across the state for entertainment and recreation to both locals and visitors alike.

Mary Valley Economic Development Strategy

The picturesque Mary Valley is abundant with rich farmland, natural beauty, and meandering rivers and creeks. The region has a history of agriculture, beef and dairy and productive farming on rich land.

The Mary Valley is in a new phase of agribusiness and economic development under the Queensland Government's revitalisation strategy. The strategy focuses on bringing agricultural land back to full production by supporting industry development in the area.

Mary Valley Rattler

The Queensland Government is investing $2.6 million to support the recommission of the Mary Valley Line. The funding will deliver critical works to upgrade railway infrastructure which will enable The Valley Rattler, a local heritage train service, to operate again.

Mission Beach Safe Boating Infrastructure

The department is augmenting marine infrastructure in Boat Bay, Mission Beach, to improve conditions for boating. The project will also provide new facilities, associated with the boating infrastructure, to support the local community.

Queen's Wharf Brisbane

The Queensland Government is working to renew an under-utilised area within Brisbane's CBD to create a unique, vibrant and iconic precinct with improved public spaces.

The Abbot Point Expansion Project

The Port of Abbot Point is a strategic asset due to its proximity to the Abbot Point SDA, the resource rich Bowen and Galilee basins and the North West Minerals Province.

The Aurukun Project

After a competitive bid process which closed 13 September 2013 two proposals were received for the development of the Aurukun bauxite resource at Cape York. In March 2014 the government decided not to accept either proposal but remains interested in developing this resource in the future.
