Queensland Agricultural Land Audit

The 2016 Annual Addendum contains updates since the release of the previous Addendum in August 2015. It highlights information and data which may affect the currency of mapping and qualitative information contained within the Queensland Agricultural Land Audit.

The Queensland Agricultural Land Audit (the Audit)  identifies land important to current and future production and the constraints to development, highlighting the diversity and importance of Queensland's agricultural industries across the state.

It is a key reference tool that will help guide investment in the agricultural sector and inform decision making to ensure the best use of our agricultural land in the future.

The Audit covered the state's 12 regions, based on planning boundaries, and assessed the opportunities and constraints including current land use, infrastructure or logistical issues and planning processes.

The Audit is an initiative that supports the government's vision for a bigger, stronger and more productive agricultural sector as one of the four pillars of the Queensland economy.

A technical report (PDF, 4.1MB) has also been developed for use in association with the Audit. It explains the methodology and information sources used to develop the Audit report. It will help people who may wish to interrogate an aspect of the Audit. It also provides a reference upon which future assessments could be undertaken.

Detailed spatial datasets can be obtained from the Queensland Spatial Catalogue.

The Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) has recently released "About my region" economic profiles of agricultural, forestry and fisheries industries for 2014. The Queensland regional profiles can be viewed on the Australian Government website.
