Agriculture Agriculture

The Cassowary Coast supports a nationally significant food production industry.

The region is home to about 80% of Australia's banana industry. It is a significant contributor to the production of sugar and a recognised premier growing region for tropical fruits and vegetables, cattle and fisheries.

Combined with readily available agricultural land, abundant rainfall, rich soils, favourable climatic conditions and plentiful sunshine, the Cassowary Coast is highly suitable for agribusiness.
