Growing the Region, Stronger Together



Collaboration | Connecting | Capacity

BIEDO was established in 1996 by Burnett local governments, community and industry activists concerned about the impact of drought on our region.

We are a not-for-profit, economic development organisation working collaboratively to build resilience and capacity by connecting individuals, regional business and government. BIEDO encompasses the North and South Burnett regions, delivering into every community and district, no matter how small or remote.

We work at a community level to create opportunity and assist with practical solutions to meet identified gaps in services and skills, driving proactive and positive change. Our network and collaboration with Councils, local service providers and community organisations enables BIEDO to deliver effective programs and much-needed services within our region.
