On 27 September 2017, Council adopted the region's first ever Economic Development Strategy, a blueprint for the Whitsunday Region economy. The Strategy was developed through consultation with industry, business and our communities.
The Whitsunday Regional Economic Development Strategy identifies the three pillar industries that underpin our economy; tourism, mining and agriculture. These three industries combine to drive economic and employment growth as well as supporting our small business sector.
