Lansdown Eco-Industrial Precinct
|Goal||3. The hub for modern industry.|
|Strategic Purpose||Driving economic growth and job creation for decades to come, Lansdown is Northern Australia’s first environmentally sustainable, advanced manufacturing, processing and technology estate powered by locally-generated renewable energy.|
|Tender now open|
Townsville City Council is now calling for tenders for land in the Lansdown Eco-Industrial Precinct.
Council has already committed and conditionally committed 899.1 hectares of land within the Precinct to four proponents across five different projects. Approximately 1200 hectares of high impact industry zoned land remains available within the Precinct.
Council seeks tenders to lease, buy or otherwise deal with remaining available land in the precinct from parties with an interest in carrying out industrial uses that are complementary to the Precinct.

The Lansdown Eco-Industrial Precinct is Northern Australia’s first environmentally sustainable advanced manufacturing, technology and processing hub.
The Precinct will realise the objectives of the Townsville City Deal (a tri-partisan agreement spanning 15 years and all levels of government) to activate industry and export growth for Townsville and its regional partners as the Industry Powerhouse of the North. For further information on the Townsville City Deal visit the City Deals website.
In 2020, approval was provided by the Department of State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning to amend the zoning of the Precinct to High Impact Industry. This is an important step in the ongoing development of the Precinct.
The Precinct offers significant strategic positioning to existing and future infrastructure networks including:
- direct access available to the Great Northern Railway (connecting Port of Townsville to Mount Isa);
- close proximity to the Port of Townsville via high volume road corridors (Flinders Highway, Bruce Highway and Southern Port Access Road) including B-Triple carriageway capacity on major routes to Port;
- immediate adjacency to the Enertrade Gas Pipeline;
- Woodstock Ergon Sub-station;
- Co-location with low-cost, locally-generated energy from the approved 200-megawatt Majors Creek Solar Farm by Edify Energy (located at 67 Macconachies Road, Majors Creek); and
- Future connection of the Precinct to the Haughton Pipeline which will provide raw water supply for industrial users.
The Lansdown Eco-Industrial Precinct is approximately 2200 hectares of freehold land owned by Townsville City Council. A public tender process in 2020 identified early proponents which have been conditionally committed approximately half of the available land.
Townsville City Council welcomes all parties interested in achieving the objectives of the Precinct to contact 13 48 10 for more information.
