Aurukun Shire Council supports the development of mining around Aurukun since this will increase the overall economic wealth of the community and its residents. It is expected that significant increased local employment opportunities will result.
The Aurukun Tourism Action Group is continuing to undertake actions within the Aurukun Shire Council Tourism Strategy. Cape York Sustainable Futures and the Cape York Alliance are working with Traditional Owners to progress tourism projects to increase economic development and local jobs.
