Katherine Logistics and Agribusiness Hub
The Government has committed to developing Katherine’s regional horticultural and agricultural potential, and also as a logistics hub to strengthen the town’s role as a transport cross ways for Queensland and Western Australia commodities. It is the Government’s desire to develop a fully operational, multi-disciplined logistics and agribusiness hub to meet the current and future growth needs of Katherine, the Top End region and northern Australia.
Consideration of short, medium and longer term opportunities from the growth of various industries within the region, will further inform the nature and design of the hub, and allow for future demand. The Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics is currently liaising with other key agencies and stakeholders to work towards identifying these opportunities, and delivering the Katherine Logistics and Agribusiness Hub.
A factsheet summarising the outcomes of an Industry Needs Assessment is now available for download.
To support the development of Katherine as an agribusiness and logistics hub, the Department of Primary Industry and Resources has released the Agribusiness Potential of the Big Rivers Region document. Further information on this document can be found on the Department of Primary Industry and Resources website.
