Sunshine Coast


The Sunshine Coast region has a diverse and buoyant economy ranging from tourism, manufacturing and agriculture to aviation and environmental technologies. According to the 2011 census, the region has a Gross Regional Product (GRP) estimated at AU$13 billion.

Since 2001, the Sunshine Coast’s economy has doubled in size and there has been notable growth in "scientific and technical services; health care and social assistance; and education and training". No doubt, these sectors will contribute to the region becoming “one of the most dynamic and innovative investment prospects in Australia”.

“The Sunshine Coast Enterprise Corridor – stretching from Noosa to Caloundra South – is the most important commercial and industry investment zone in the region and will accommodate much of the region’s population growth and the majority of new businesses over the next twenty years”.

The coast offers a highly competitive business location, stable government and strong intellectual property protection in addition to “world class infrastructure and services which make it a natural location for businesses competing in a global market”.
