Work with us to shape Queensland’s future

MITEZ is built on the strength of our member organisations and the results they produce while working together to develop and grow the region’s economies.

“From small things, big things grow is a message that inspires the Mount Isa to Townsville Economic Zone (MITEZ) and is the reason the regional development group supports a variety of projects such as feasibility studies and technical reports that are expected to benefit economies in the North West.”

the MITEZ Region

Developing Northern Queensland’s transport corridor

The Mount Isa to Townsville Economic Development Zone (MITEZ) is the regional development area between Queensland’s Western border and the 900km stretch to the Great Barrier Reef in the east.

As one of the country’s biggest infrastructure corridors, MITEZ connects Queensland to Australia and the rest of the world, helping to provide, process and export many of the resources our country has become famous for.
