Back A Local Business

Townsville Enterprise is backing local business and offering support to our regional 'Support Local' campaigns. 

Wherever possible over the coming months, we're encouraging all of North Queensland to band together and to support local, and explore local (when the time is right!). This support can range from buying gift vouchers to be used at a later date, postponing appointments rather than cancelling, buying food from businesses that are now offering takeaway options and supporting your local corner stores and/or independent/locally owned produce suppliers.

Each region has asked for locals to support locals, and we're doing our bit to help share the message. If your business has adapted over the past few weeks, let us help the community know you’re open for business!

Remember to only visit local businesses if you are not showing any flu-like symptoms, abide by social distancing restrictions and wash/ sanitise your hands regularly. Businesses have all implemented strict hygiene measures to ensure they're doing everything in their power to keep you safe. For the latest information and advice on COVID-19, visit

Townsville and Magnetic Island

The 'Support Local Townsville' campaign, managed by Townsville City Council, is encouraging local business owners to register for a FREE online business listing. This is a central business directory listing all businesses in the region with adapted services, or open times.



The message from the Burdekin is that it's never been more important to shop local, and are encouraging people to Buy It In the Burdekin!

The Burdekin Shire Council are supporting local business with regular updates on their Facebook page, with information on business innovations, open times and special services.
