Queensland’s regions

The diversity of our regions enables Queensland to produce a wide range of high-quality produce year-round, from bananas in the north, to winter vegetables in the south, and beef in the west.

We used DAF forecasts for agricultural production and Australian Bureau of Statistics data at the Statistical Area 2 level to estimate the gross value of production (GVP) for Queensland’s regions.

Explore the dashboard below to see the major growing regions and what they produce, their GVP, total area of production, and number of agricultural enterprises.

We’re committed to providing accessible content for the widest possible audience, and are working to improve our offering. If you’d like more information about any of the graphics on this page, please contact us on 13 25 23.

Beyond agricultural commodities

The role of Queensland’s primary industries extends beyond producing agricultural commodities. Primary industry commodities are used in many manufacturing, retail and service industries. By looking at the value of agriculture and the food supply chain, we can better understand the role of primary industries in the state’s economy.

Queensland’s food supply chain extends from primary production of agricultural products to food services and a range of manufactured goods that are delivered to consumers. The figures in the above dashboard are estimates of the:

  • economic contribution (gross value added)
  • number of employees in agriculture and the food supply chain.
