South Australia is the ideal location for defence sector investment. It combines low business costs, an exceptional quality of life, a knowledge-based economy, a world-class education system, and a strong defence and manufacturing heritage.

The state is at the centre of the nation’s air, road and rail logistics networks, which offer easy and efficient connections to national, South-East Asian and other global markets.

Our business advantages include full-time private sector labour costs that are 10.8% below the Australian average; residential, commercial and industrial property prices that are among the lowest of Australia’s mainland capital cities; and highly competitive construction costs.

Adelaide also boasts affordable land linked to transport corridors and key infrastructure.

Defence SA has a team ready to assist defence-related investors that want to pursue opportunities in the state. For more information about how Defence SA can support your business, email enquiries@defencesa.com.
