Western Downs Regional Council

A region the size of Tasmania, just 2.5 hours west of Brisbane and an easy drive from the Sunshine and Gold Coasts, the Western Downs has a growing population of over 34,000 people.

The region’s diverse economy, vibrant active communities and the extensive infrastructure and multi-billion dollar energy investments are ensuring that the Western Downs continues to go from strength-to-strength.

Western Downs Regional Council is one of only a handful of council’s in the state of Queensland to be debt-free, having paid the final instalment of its $60 million debt in March 2019.

Council is very proud of this immense achievement which it had been working towards since 2015, proving itself to be one of the most financially prudent councils in Queensland.

Located in the heart of the resource rich Surat Basin, the region has a diversified energy portfolio with five pillars of energy generation: Coal, Gas, Ethanol, Wind and Solar cementing our reputation as the Energy Capital of Queensland.

Not just solar and sorghum the Western Downs is famous for its unique, large-scale events with Council hosting Opera at Jimbour and the Big Skies Festival, adding to the region’s five other major festivals.

Built on agriculture and thriving in the intensive agriculture, energy and manufacturing industries, Western Downs Regional Council is focused on making our region a great place to live, work, visit and invest.
