Economic development strategy

'Queenscliff' location sign at the old railway station

The Borough of Queenscliffe Economic Development Strategy was adopted by Council in December 2017 following funding approval from the Victorian Government. The ultimate goal of the Economic Development Strategy is to future-proof the Borough, ensuring sustainable business, driving economic benefits for the greater community and saluting our heritage values so that our safe haven can welcome and support a thriving population for generations to come.

The strategy has been designed around five pillars that build on existing opportunities:

  1. Increase sustainable yield from the visitor economy
  2. Connect and partner with local government counterparts and large employers in the region
  3. Utilise built and natural assets to deliver experiential excellence for visitors
  4. Diversify the local economy into non-visitor sectors
  5. Present the Borough as a premier location for retirees.
