Major projects

We are delivering major projects to achieve economic development outcomes for Queensland.

We work collaboratively with stakeholders from industry, state, and local government to deliver major projects that achieve economic development outcomes for Queensland.

This work includes:

  • the delivery of Integrated Resort Developments; Global Tourism Hubs; and other government supported initiatives and
  • working with stakeholders to progress multi-year development projects from concept to operation.

Our major projects

These major projects are developed and facilitated by the Tourism Development Projects Division (TDPD) who a specialised work unit are achieving economic development outcomes through the delivery of Integrated Resort Developments, ecotourism opportunities and other initiatives supported by Government.

TDPD has well established networks with industry, state government agencies, traditional owners and local governments. The team works collaboratively with stakeholders and departmental colleagues to progress multi-year development projects from concept to operation.

Global Tourism Hubs

The process for the Queensland Government’s two Global Tourism Hubs (Tropical North Queensland and the Gold Coast) ended on 11 July 2020.

Global market conditions (including COVID-19) are clearly impacting on investment decisions, particularly in the tourism sector. Given this, the Queensland Government will not proceed with the market process for the foreseeable future.
