Region 18 covers the Queensland capital of Brisbane, traditional land of the Turrbal and Jagera People. The South East Qld Region, centered on Brisbane area, with 3 500 000 residents, is densely populated with many services supporting access.
Redcliffe and Deception Bay form the northern borders of Region 18 and are home to a large indigenous population.

Ipswich City currently has a population of 200,000 but as one of the fastest growing areas in the region, this is expected to top 435,000 by the year 2031. This provides many opportunities, but also presents many challenges in relation to speed of population growth versus service and infrastructure.

The Region also covers the Lockyer Valley (colloquially known as “Australia’s Salad Bowl” due to the crops grown here), parts of Somerset and Scenic Rim. These rural areas have limited industry and significant transport issues.
A number of resettlement services are located strategically to assist specific areas who are supporting growing multicultural communities.
The region is serviced by a number of excellent VET providers and Universities, providing many different options for further education.
Queensland service providers (on the whole) do work well together though to help meet needs in less accessible areas. TAFE Qld is the host provider for Region 18, with an established reputation as a key education and training provider.
