Nestled on the banks of the Cloncurry River, Cloncurry is located 700 kilometres west of Townsville, 120 kilometres east of Mount Isa and 400 kilometres south of the Gulf of Carpentaria.
A significant contributor of mining royalties from the North West, Cloncurry is harnessing unprecedented growth in the mining sector. With an established pastoral industry and strong transport infrastructure Cloncurry is a prime candidate in the North West for future growth.
With easy access to major transport routes, the Shire is a strategic link between Brisbane/Sydney to Darwin and beyond. Accessible by road, rail and air Cloncurry is a vital link in the Mount Isa Rail Corridor connecting mining, agricultural and broader regional activity in Queensland’s North West to the Townsville Port.
With a population of approximately 3,800 Cloncurry provides residents and surrounding properties access to a wide range of essential and specialist health, hospital and medical facilities, education and family services and community facilities.
Cloncurry Shire’s economy is built upon strengths in the transport, agriculture, tourism and mining industries, with diverse infrastructure strategically planned to attract and support development.
With a strong business environment and land available for a wide variety of commercial and industrial uses Cloncurry harnesses room for growing business.
Future opportunities include a number of new mines including gold, copper, zinc, and rare earth elements that will be mined, processed and transported to markets from Cloncurry. With an abundance of mineral resources, access to electricity generation and water supplies there is tremendous capacity for industries to grow and provide a secure future for the town.
