Regional Queensland Showcase

Regional Queensland Showcase Brisbane experienced the best of regional Queensland over two big days at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. From 12-13 June 2015, the department’s Regional Queensland Showcase highlighted investment opportunities, jobs, housing and lifestyle benefits available to those considering a move to regional Queensland. We’re following up the enquiries from South East Queensland families, looking to move to regional Queensland, and will provide more information soon.


Airwork Helicopters

In May 2015, Queensland operator Airwork Helicopters, one of Australia’s leading helicopter flight training schools, successfully gained approval from CASA to manufacture tail rotor blades for Bell 206 helicopters. Department staff from the SEQ North regional office have been working with Airwork Helicopters since 2010. They were instrumental in helping Airwork with an early stage grant that helped get the project started, developing a business plan and preparing them for a professional and successful Business and Industry Transformational Incentive application.


Queensland State Velodrome

Construction is underway on Queensland's first indoor velodrome which is one of three new venues being delivered for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. This new world-class facility will be located alongside the Brisbane Super X BMX Track at Sleeman Sports Complex and will provide a new centre of excellence for cycling in Queensland.
