The Greater Whitsunday Council of Mayors (then Whitsunday ROC) recognised the need for a Regional Economic Development Group and during 2016 strived to determine the best way forward for a regional approach to Economic Development. A review was undertaken of the Mackay Whitsunday Regional Economic Development Ltd (MWREDC commonly called REDC) which was mothballed in 2014 and deliberated on the most appropriate path to form a regional group.

This led to the announcement in September 2016 that the Greater Whitsunday Alliance (GW3) would be developed as an economic development entity working for the Region.

September 15, 2016, then Whitsunday ROC Chairperson Cr Anne Baker said that “today is the start of a new era for the Region with great expectations of the benefits that working regionally through a strong entity such as GW3 can provide. GW3 will be the ideal vehicle to promote a unified Regional front for major initiatives.

The GWCoM’s continues to be a strong supporter of GW3, and through the associated Council’s provides financial support.

Mackay Mayor Greg Williamson is the appointed GWCoM’s Director on the Board of GW3.
