Connection to markets

Strategically positioned to do business

Located just north of Queensland’s capital city, Moreton Bay’s close proximity to Brisbane provides all the infrastructure, services, employment and business opportunities of a major urban metropolis, without the big city price tag.

More markets at your doorstep

A key advantage of the Moreton Bay Region is its strategic location in South East Queensland, which is home to 3.6 million people (1 in 7 Australians).

The Bruce Highway offers direct access to domestic markets. Moreton Bay is just a 30 minute drive to Brisbane’s CBD, less than a one hour drive from the Sunshine Coast to the north, and a 1.5 hour drive from the Gold Coast to the south.

Transport links for growth

Moreton Bay’s proximity to export pathways and logistic facilities offer businesses direct access to major global markets.

Brisbane’s Domestic and International Airport (BNE) is located just 20 minutes from the region on the northern side of Brisbane. This major airport has the third highest number of domestic connections after Sydney and Melbourne and supports 31 airlines and carries passenger and cargo to 50 domestic and 29 international destinations.

The Port of Brisbane is Australia’s fastest growing container port and Queensland’s largest multi-cargo port. Located approximately 30 minutes away from the Moreton Bay Region, the port offers access to major trading partners, including Asia, New Zealand, and the Guld and Middle East regions.

The region is serviced by passenger rail as part of the South East Queensland Translink network, plus buses that service local centres and destinations, creating easy connections to the rest of Queensland.

Brisbane Airport (BNE) has the largest aviation capacity of any city in Australia with up to 110 aircraft movements per hour, rivalling international hubs such as Singapore Changi Airport and Hong Kong International Airport.
