(a) Top 5 SLAs exclude regions with less than 100 Wage and salary earners
(b) Excludes SLA 'Qld Unknown'


Regions with the State's highest average Wage and salary incomes were located outside the Brisbane SD. These were Issac (R) - Broadsound ($72,067), Isaac (R) - Belyando ($70,703), and Issac (R) - Nebo ($70,151). The SLAs that constitute the Isaac Regional Council are located on the Central Coast of Queensland; an area characterised by a mix of industries, including coal mining, cattle grazing, sugar cane and grain farming. The SLAs within the Central Highlands region (e.g. Duaringa and Peak Downs) have economic activities mainly involving coal mining, grain production and cattle farming.

Within the Brisbane SD, the SLAs with the highest average Wage and salary incomes were located immediately north and south of the Brisbane River. These included the inner northern areas of Hamilton and Ascot, and on the southern banks of the river, the SLAs of Balmoral, Bulimba and Hawthorne.
