This paper presents the results of a Bureau of Transport Economics study of the regional impact of the Port of Mackay located on the central coast of Queensland. The port is an important component of the transport chain for sugar and agriculture. By measuring both direct and flow-on effects, the study estimated that the port was responsible for 1.0% of all employment in the region, with a value added contribution of 0.9%.
