Economic Profile Economic Profile

Noosa Council monitors key economic indicators annually and a wider range of data across census periods.  This information is used to inform the development of policy and programs by Council, industry, institutions and organisations.  

The Noosa Economy is strong and growing. It reflects many national trends such as an ageing population and growth in the health care and social services, professional, scientific and technical services.  The local economy is reliant on tourism and population driven industry sectors and will benefit from a more diversified economic base that is geared more towards knowledge-based industry sectors.
