Queensland stands at the crossroads of opportunity.
There is a strong pipeline of projects, including the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, bringing once in a generation economic, social, and cultural opportunities for the state, but these opportunities are not without their challenges.
These challenges will require collaborative and decisive action across all levels of government and industry.
Our members invest in, design, build and manage places that matter to Queenslanders and through our advocacy, we’re ensuring the voices of our members are heard on the issues that matter to them.

In this report commissioned by the Property Council of Australia, EY shows lowering the managed investment trust (MIT) withholding tax rate to 10 per cent for build-to-rent projects with an affordable housing component could accelerate the building of 10,000 affordable homes over 10 years.

Our priorities are to ensure affordable, quality housing for all Queenslanders, thriving city centres, and regulatory settings that facilitate job-creating investment.
The opportunity for the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games to leave a lasting legacy for Queensland is expansive. Working in partnership with all levels of government and key stakeholders, our long term advocacy priorities focus on delivering generational, social, environmental and place-making benefits for all Queenslanders.

The role of the Queensland Division Council is to best represent the collective interests of Queensland members. Members are nominated by industry peers and appointed for a two-year term, with the Queensland President also securing a position on the National Board. Division Councils are responsible for all local initiatives, and also leverage the Property Council’s campaigns to achieve state based results. The current Division Council representatives commenced their tenure in March 2023.
Committees meet every four to six weeks to discuss issues and projects relevant to their expertise and the focus of the Committee. Being selected as a member of a Property Council Committee gives you the opportunity to help shape the future and influence the organisation’s agenda. Members have the opportunity to contribute to important, focused industry discussions while building their professional networks and knowledge.
As part of our 40-40-20 commitment to gender equity, all our Committees comprise a minimum of 40 per cent female representatives. Committee members are appointed for a two-year term, with the current Committees commencing their tenure in February 2023.

The Champions of Change Coalition is a globally recognised strategy for advancing gender equality and building respectful, inclusive workplaces. We established the Champions of Change Property Group in 2015 to advance this cause in the sector, and today the group involves leaders who oversee more than 25,000 employees.
Girls in Property
Girls in Property is a program that informs high school students of the various career paths available across the property industry. It aims to generate a more diverse pipeline of talent by encouraging more women into the sector. Students gain insights into the industry and hear from leaders about what a career in property looks like.
