Key Industry Sectors
The Injune community has benefited from the development of the CSG industry thanks to its close proximity to the Arcadia Valley, Fairview, and Spring Gully gas fields. The town is ideally located to service the CSG workforce, and has housed a significant number of workers over the last three years (non-resident workers accounted for approximately 25% of the town’s population in 2014).
In addition to the CSG and agricultural sectors, tourism is a key contributor to Injune’s economy. The Carnarvon Gorge National Park is a major regional attraction, with significant tourist visitation throughout the year. Although the park is outside of the Maranoa, Injune experiences significant visitor spending due to its close proximity to the attraction. About 90 vehicles enter the national park on a daily basis and an estimated 32,850 tourists visit the park every year.
Injune has a variety of businesses and services within the township. These include government services, hairdresser, newsagency, hardware, clothing and gifts, rural supplies, post office, banking and QGAP services.
