Brisbane Airport CorporationAcross the world, the role of the airport is being redefined. They are no longer just places to catch a plane. Airports are emerging as major business activity centres and Brisbane Airport is no exception.

Brisbane Airport is doing this by blending core aviation activities of passenger and cargo movement with a full range of industrial and commercial activity such as hospitality, entertainment, sport, retail, childcare, health services and recreation.

Combined with its position within the Australia TradeCoast region and with immediate access to existing and new road, rail and airport infrastructure in a 24/7 operational environment located only 12 km from the CBD, Brisbane Airport is increasingly attracting big names in aviation.

Brisbane Airport is already home to FedEx, Yusen, Birkart Globalistics, Australian Air Express and Schenker, and has prospects for new tenants across nine master-planned airport precincts. The precincts are designed to cater for the needs of each occupant, ranging from Aerotech Park’s aircraft maintenance precinct, Export Park that focuses on logistics, to Airport Village, the office and entertainment precinct for the airport.

Brisbane’s Airport is emerging – be part of it.

Bundaberg Regional CouncilBundaberg Regional Aviation and Aerospace Precinct is becoming increasingly popular with aviation-based industries. Many world-class businesses are already based at the Bundaberg Regional Aviation and Aerospace Precinct. These include Jabiru, that designs and manufactures aircraft ideal for flying training, rural property management and recreational flying, and Microair Avionics, Australia’s leading avionics design and manufacturing company and world-class Electronics Manufacturer. Charter operators and pilot training schools also operate at the Precinct.

The Bundaberg region’s focus on aviation even extends to education – with a Bachelor of Aviation Technology and Bachelor of Business Aviation degree offered at CQ University’s Bundaberg campus, which prepares graduates for work in a range of operational and management positions within the aviation, aerospace and information technology industries.

Bundaberg Regional Council has commenced construction of a 34-lot industrial and commercial staged subdivision, with 10 direct airside lots and freehold land available. Aviation enthusiasts can even live on-site at the master-planned Kensington Gardens, modelled on the best of the airpark communities in the United States, with immediate access from home to aircraft hangar.

Bundaberg Regional Airport is now ‘jet ready’, following the lengthening and strengthening of the airstrip and new apron to accommodate jet services.

Fraser Coast Regional CouncilFly high on the Fraser Coast!

The sky is the limit for the aviation industry on the Fraser Coast where a stunning tapestry of natural wonders, including World Heritage listed Fraser Island and the start of the Great Barrier Reef, form nature’s perfect playground.

Ideally located on the Queensland coast, only 300 km north of Brisbane, this popular tourism destination and strong industrial centre is one Australia’s fastest growing local government areas and is ideally suited to accommodate an expanding aviation industry.

The Queensland Government has recently recognised the Wide Bay Burnett as a Centre of Enterprise for key aviation industry opportunities.

The Fraser Coast Regional Council has also launched an ambitious plan to increase aviation tourism, guide growth in air services and facilitate the establishment of a buoyant aviation industry with the launch of its draft 2030 Aviation Strategy.

Targeted aviation-related activities include aircraft production and retrofitting, corporate fleet basing, aviation education, parts supply and distribution, research and development, freight distribution and maintenance and repair services.

Ipswich City CouncilIpswich is on the cusp of tremendous change as it creates a new, vibrant city centre, creates employment opportunities by attracting business to the region and helps to manage the South East Queensland population explosion and is a model for sustainable developments.

The city has become a hub for aviation and aerospace within South East Queensland, with many local businesses established as key providers for the growing RAAF super base at Amberley. With the Air Force base expected to increase employees from 3500 to 5000 over the next few years, significant demand will be placed on local companies servicing RAAF aircraft.

Plans are well underway for the 170 ha Aerospace and Defence Support Centre – Amberley (ADSCA), a centre of excellence that will be positioned adjacent to the Air Force base and will further develop the city’s reputation as an aerospace and defence industry hub. The ADSCA will allow suppliers to the industry to plug into the emerging opportunities the centre will provide, including a full range of support services for the base via aircraft taxiway, roads and other essential infrastructure.

The city’s future is indeed bright. With more than 110 new residents moving to the city each week, an established business community and developing industry hubs, Ipswich looks set to continue its growth for years to come. This growth will compliment that of the RAAF base at Amberley.
