The 6076 hectare Bundaberg State Development Area (SDA) was declared on 10 February 2017. It is located north of Bundaberg city and includes:

  • land on the eastern side of the Burnett River near the Port of Bundaberg, including surrounding port-related industrial uses
  • land on the western side of the Burnett River, predominantly used for sugar cane cultivation and rural landholdings.

The Bundaberg SDA was established in response to a growing demand for land for port-related and industrial activities around the Port of Bundaberg. The Bundaberg SDA could help facilitate economic growth and employment opportunities in the Bundaberg and Wide Bay Burnett regions.

Following the declaration of the Bundaberg SDA, the Bundaberg SDA Draft Development Scheme has been prepared and is currently on public consultation until 9 October 2017.
