In Central Queensland, all roads lead to Rockhampton which sees the transportation of food coming through the Region which provides opportunities for food manufacturing and value adding processes.
Rockhampton Region hosts two regional scale industrial areas at key locations in Parkhurst and Gracemere suitable to cater for large scale food manufacturing.
The Parkhurst Industrial Area (PIA) is located in North Rockhampton and is in close proximity to the Bruce Highway and North Coast Rail Line which form the backbone of Queensland road and rail networks. The PIA hosts a mix of heavy, medium and light industry and is ideally positioned to capitalise on the proposed Rockhampton Ring Road once constructed.
The Gracemere Industrial Area (GIA) is located a short distance to the south-west of Rockhampton with good access to the Bruce and Capricorn Highways. The GIA has direct access to the Capricorn Highway and Type 1 Road Train Route. The GIA is home to a number of existing transport operators including general, specialist and livestock freighters. Gracemere Industrial Area hosts a number of related service industries and has a 24/7 unmanned fuel station. Fully serviced and competitively priced land is available for purchase and several local developers will consider construct and lease arrangements.
