Mareeba Shire Council has reduced the price of land in the Mareeba Industrial Park in a bid to entice development

The park is one of Mareeba Shire’s most significant investments in the economic development of the shire.

It has slowly been developed in stages with five out of the current 28 lots up for sale being reduced in price dropping from the initial $65 per square metre to $60. 

Mareeba Shire Mayor Angela Toppin said that the Mareeba industrial park is a great place to invest and has much more expansion on the cards. 

“Mareeba is a regional logistics and agricultural services hub, with the geographical benefit of bordering Cairns, the Gulf, Cape York and the Atherton Tablelands,” she said. 

“The Industrial Park is situated a mere 12 kilometres from the recently upgraded Mareeba Airport. 

“Council is positioning the Industrial Park as a prime opportunity for business, industry and investors.” 

Mayor Toppin encourages potential investors to consider the benefits of choosing to do business at the Mareeba industrial park.

“This industrial park presents a real opportunity to business and industry, with some of the most flexible land use in Queensland,” Mayor Toppin. 

“Council can accommodate a range of industries including biotechnology, fuels, chemicals, manufacturing, sales, logistics and storage to name a few. 

“Council views the Mareeba Industrial Park as the place to do business and, as Mayor, I encourage business and industry to consider Mareeba.”

Information regarding the Mareeba Industrial Park is available on Council’s website.
