    Queensland Drones Strategy

    The Queensland Drones Strategy (QDS) has been developed to build upon Queensland’s strengths and leverage the state’s innovation success to take advantage of new and emerging opportunities, complementing the Queensland Government’s Advance Queensland initiative. The QDS has been developed through consultation across government, with industry, academia and the general public to ensure the strategy is best able to support the industry now and into the future.

    Our vision is that Queensland is a world-leader in drone technology and application. Our drone industry has strong investment and jobs growth, supported by our world-leading research and development capability, a highly-skilled workforce, and is a place where drones complement and enhance peoples’ lives and support our communities.

    The vision of the QDS is supported by five key objectives:

    • attracting national and international investment
    • increasing industry and workforce capability
    • increasing research and development
    • supporting community-friendly drone policies
    • improving government service delivery.
