QUEENSLAND


TOP AVERAGE WAGE AND SALARY INCOME REGIONS, 2006-07

Within the Brisbane SD, the SLAs with the highest average Wage and salary incomes are located immediately north and south of the Brisbane River. These include the inner northern areas of Ascot and Hamilton, and on the southern banks of the river, the SLAs of Bulimba and Hawthorne (Balmoral is an adjoining inner suburb). These SLAs were also characterised by relatively high growth in Wage and salary incomes over the four year period to June 2007.

The top five SLAs outside the Brisbane SD are all located along - or near - the central coast of Queensland, south-west of Mackay and Rockhampton. The SLAs that constitute the Issac Regional Council (Broadsound, Belyando and Nebo) are noted for their varied mix of economic activities, including coal mining, cattle grazing, agriculture (including sugar cane and grain). Peak Downs and Duaringa SLAs are both located in the Central Highlands region of the state and their main activities include coal mining, grain production and beef farming.

In 2006-07, four of the top five SLAs in Balance of Queensland recorded average Wage and salary incomes higher than any SLAs in the Brisbane Statistical Division.
