When it comes to business or investment opportunities, the Blackall-Tambo area offers a strong and diverse economy in an attractive and affordable location.

Apart from being a popular tourist destination, the Blackall-Tambo area is also one of Australia's fastest growing regions, with two major region centres servicing a population of 90,000. 

The Blackall-Tambo Regional Council has developed a five point plan to help minimise the impact of the current global financial crisis on our region.

The plan outlines the Council's initiatives under the headings:

  • Employment security
  • Utilisation of local suppliers in the provision of goods and services
  • Injection of funds into the local economy
  • Development activity
  • Strong fiscal management

When starting, growing or marketing your business, finding the right support, information, licenses, permits, etc, or even the right government department to contact can be a bit confusing.

To streamline this process, the Queensland Government’s online Business and Industry Portal (BIP) simplifies this for you.

Located online at, the BIP provides a FREE, single-access point for all your business, industry and investment needs.
