Property Council of Australia

The Property Council of Australia is the leading advocate for Australia’s biggest industry – property.

Our industry represents one ninth of Australia’s GDP (the largest of any sector), employs 1.1 million Australians (more than mining and manufacturing combined) and generates $72 billion in tax revenues to fund community services.

The Property Council champions the interests of more than 2200 member companies that represent the full spectrum of the industry, including those who invest, own, manage and develop in all sectors of property, creating landmark projects and environments where people live, work, shop and play.

Led by a powerful board and strong executive leadership team, the Property Council’s vision is a thriving industry creating prosperity, jobs and strong communities.

In 2015 our two key advocacy priorities are fairer taxes and better planning with an overall objective to improve housing affordability in Australia.

The Property Council has around 95 staff located across ten offices around the country to service the needs of our members.
