a great place to do business
Providing numerous opportunities to investors, TRANSlink is ideally suited to those operating in the transport, logistics, and warehousing industries as well as those involved in manufacturing, light-industrial and export-oriented activities. In contrast to the congested industrial precincts of other Australian cities, TRANSlink has an ease of accessibility with additional land earmarked for further development.
Nearly 100 established businesses are accommodated within TRANSlink and the adjacent airport, ranging from local to multinational companies. These businesses are supported by skilled employees working in logistics, transport, and warehousing to manufacturing, construction, and wholesale trade.
TRANSlink covers over 350 hectares of land with 60 hectares of flat, shovel ready, vacant parcels for new commercial and industrial businesses. These range from around 2,500m2 to over 27 hectares enabling a variety of development options. An additional 90 hectares is earmarked for future development and a further 130 hectares are potentially available pending examination of land use and demand requirements.
As a result of careful planning, a range of shovel ready, appropriately zoned and competitively
priced land is available and ready for development. The vast majority of this land is flat with currently around 30 vacant parcels representing approximately 60 hectares with
all vacant parcels greater than 2000m2 in size.
Outside of the actual airport complex, there are approximately 80 businesses already established in TRANSLink
with the vacant parcels owned by a variety of freeholders with tenure options that include freehold or leasehold.
In addition, the Northern Midlands Council has a further 90 hectares identified in a defined expansion area and an additional 130 hectares earmarked for future investigation.
