About The Scenic Rim

The Scenic Rim region is located within the South East Queensland (SEQ) region, approximately one hour’s drive south of Brisbane and one hour west of Gold Coast City. SEQ is Australia’s fastest growing metropolitan region with over 2.8 million people, and is expected to grow to over 4.4 million by 20313. Within this broader context, the population of the Scenic Rim Local Government Area (LGA) was approximately 37,400 in 2009 and is projected to grow to between 61,950 and 97,840 by 20314.

Brisbane City and Gold Coast City are the focus of industry, economic growth and innovation within the SEQ region. Scenic Rim, Lockyer Valley and Somerset comprise the rural hinterland and are generally characterised by diverse rural and agricultural landscapes. Historically, these local governments are the major food production areas for the SEQ region, and they also offer a range of tourism, leisure and recreation products, services and experiences.

BROMELTON DEVELOPMENT - $30 MILLION INTERMODAL FREIGHT TERMINAL

The Bromelton Development will account for approximately 1800 hectares and include land designated for:

  • rail dependent industry
  • major industry
  • major inustry sub-precinct
  • Examples of suitable industries include:
  • large-lot industrial uses requiring direct access to the national standard-gauge rail network
  • freight and logistics operations (major intermodal freight terminal)
  • medium and large scale manufacturing and warehousing activities with road and/or rail requirements
  • industry support services, freight and logistics/transport servicing depots
  • high-impact and difficult to locate industries that require separation from non-industrial uses due to the potential off-site impacts (in the major industry sub-precinct). 

 

Bromelton Industrial Park would likely stand as one of the most significant achievements of any Council - past, present or future - in terms of delivering growth and employment opportunities to the Scenic Rim region. As a regional employment hub, Bromelton will drive the growth of this region for years to come, creating an engine room for jobs, business opportunities and local development.

Projections are that this new industrial precinct will generate more than 3000 jobs by 2016, tripling to almost 10,000 jobs by 2031. Bromelton will provide a massive boost to the Scenic Rim and no doubt position the region at the forefront of jobs growth in South-East Queensland in the years ahead.

SCT has built world class rail terminals in Melbourne VIC, Perth WA, Adelaide SA and Parkes NSW. SCT have invested in the future through land acquisitions in Bromelton QLD for major rail freight centre developments to further complement their existing logistical centres.
