Defence Landing Pad

The Defence Landing Pad, located in the heart of Adelaide’s CBD, is a one-stop shop supporting international companies to establish a presence in South Australia to explore opportunities in the state’s thriving defence and space sectors. 

Situated at the new innovation neighbourhood Lot Fourteen, the Defence Landing Pad provides a home to global companies, enabling them to develop their Australia business strategy and plan local operations.

Lot Fourteen, on the site of the former Royal Adelaide Hospital in the heart of Adelaide's CBD, is being transformed into Australia's first creation and innovation neighbourhood. The precinct will create an entrepreneurial ecosystem and drive jobs in fast-growing industries such as defence and space, artificial intelligence, cyber security, smart sensor networks, robotics and big data. 

The Defence Landing Pad will provide:

  • Access to affordable, short-term office facilities
  • Access to government and industry support services in a single location
  • Assistance with local regulations, migration, business establishment and real estate
  • Information on workforce availability and skilling opportunities 

The Defence Landing Pad provides a unique opportunity for international businesses to build relationships with South Australian businesses and create opportunities for supply chain collaboration. 

Lot Fourteen, the former Royal Adelaide Hospital site, is being transformed into a creation and innovation neighbourhood, bringing together entrepreneurs, start-ups, corporations, mentors, researchers and investors in some of the world’s fastest growing industries.
