Australia's First
Space Manufacturing
Hub in Adelaide

We are cementing South Australia as the undisputed centre of Australia’s space industry – creating thousands of highly-paid, highly-skilled jobs.

What we'll do

A re-elected Marshall Liberal Government will establish Australia’s first dedicated space manufacturing hub – the Australian Space Park – at the Adelaide Airport.

In partnership with the Federal Government, this $66 million, Silicone Valley-style space park will have four large space manufacturing companies co-located and a common user facility for startups and space businesses to manufacture space technologies.

The Australian Space Park will bridge the gap between research and development and manufacturing of small satellites, rockets, small aircraft and supporting tech systems – creating over 1,000 jobs in the process.

It will enable design, manufacture, launch and mission control to all happen right here in South Australia.

This new facility further cements Adelaide as the centre of Australia’s space industry with the headquarters of the Australian Space Agency already located here at Lot Fourteen and over 90 space-related organisations now choosing to base their businesses in South Australia.

In partnership with the Federal Government, we want to grow the space industry to $12 billion, creating an additional 20,000 long-term, high-wage, high-skill jobs by 2030.

What it means for you

  • More highly paid, highly skilled jobs now and in the future
  • A vital manufacturing link for Australia’s space companies
  • Our children won't need to leave the state to get jobs in hi-tech, growth industries
