Gascoyne region is ripe for commercial development, investing

WITH wide open spaces and unique natural marine and terrestrial attractions, the Gascoyne region holds huge potential for continued commercial development.

It has land available for a range of projects and each of the major towns have available residential and industrial blocks.

Development of residential blocks along the Fascine waterway in Carnarvon, represents considerable opportunity for access to attractive and affordable housing.

The project caters for boat access through the watercourse and the construction of an estate with 160 Stage One residential lots, of which 40 will have water frontage.

Openings exist for investment in a range of manufacturing industries, following the success of other ventures, including the quick liming plant at Learmonth, plaster/plasterboard manufacturing with gypsum mined at Lake MacLeod, fish processing and aquaculture development, value-adding of fish products – bottling, smoking or pickling – and value adding of horticultural products.

Other opportunities include exploration and mining, especially within the mammoth hydrocarbon and natural gas reserves located north and west of Exmouth.

The climatic conditions provided by the Gascoyne are conducive to salt production by solar evaporation of either seawater or naturally occurring brines in salt lakes.

Salt extraction, at Lake MacLeod near Carnarvon and Useless Loop in Shark Bay, is the basis of the region’s mining industry.
