The region produces the biggest sugar cane crops in the country, together with a diverse selection of vegetables and tropical fruits.

Along the coast you will find Alva Beach, a popular launching spot for dive boats heading out to explore the S.S Yongala shipwreck. This shipwreck has been ranked as one of the top 10 wreck dives in the world because of its abundant mega-marine life and corals. The Burdekin region is also a popular spot for fishing, well-known for it's barramundi, mudcrabs, other estuary species and off-coast reef fishing.
