From simple beginnings in a health food store in Brisbane’s CBD in the 1930s, Blackmores has grown into an international business, with more than 1000 employees in Australia, New Zealand and Asia and its range of vitamins, minerals, herbal and nutritional supplements sold to consumers in 17 countries.
The company was founded by English immigrant and naturopath Maurice Blackmore (1906-1977, pictured), whose views on natural health and preventive medicine were at the time considered ‘radical’.
His son Marcus, Blackmores’ Chairman, took the company reins in 1975 and has built on his father’s legacy. He said the company, now headquartered in Sydney, remains proud of its Queensland heritage. For nine consecutive years Blackmores has been named the Reader’s Digest Most Trusted Brand in the Vitamins and Supplements category. Images
Founded in Brisbane in 2001 by Shainiel Deo (pictured) and a group of young graduates with a passion for games, Halfbrick has grown to be a leader in the games development industry in Australia and make its mark in the $108 billion global games industry.
After initially developing licensed content for major publishers, Halfbrick cemented its name with the release in 2010 of its own Fruit Ninja, one of the first mobile games to take advantage of the iPhone. Fruit Ninja has achieved more than 1.5 billion downloads and is the world’s second most downloaded app of all time.
The studio followed that success with a number of other games, including Jetpack Joyride, which is among the top 25 downloaded games in the world with more than 500 million downloads.
Halfbrick’s achievements have seen it grow to employing 110 people in Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, San Francisco, Madrid and Bulgaria.

An iconic name synonymous with vanilla, Queen is the state’s longest-selling food brand celebrating its 120th anniversary this year.
The Australian market-leading producer of vanilla essences, extracts, food colourings and other cooking and baking staples sells millions of bottles of its products throughout the country and overseas. In Australia alone, its production output could make more than 50 million cakes and desserts in a year.
The Queen brand traces its origins to Londoner Edward Taylor, who migrated to Queensland and formed a partnership with J.L. Colledge to become Taylor and Colledge. The Himstedt family acquired the company in 1978, with father Ross later joined by sons Fred, Sam and Tom in the business.
Among Queen’s innovations has been the creation of a vanilla bean paste, the first of its kind on Australian supermarket shelves, which won the Most Innovative Food Ingredient award at the 2005 International Food & Drink Event in the UK.
Queen has also assisted vanilla growers in Vava’u, Tonga to re-establish their once-thriving vanilla industry and grow world-class vanilla. Images
For more than a century, from 1867, Maryborough-based Walkers Limited was an industry stalwart in regional Queensland and engineering powerhouse. Its success was crucial to Maryborough’s development as a city and as a community.
Originally formed to supply equipment to gold mining operations around Gympie, the company quickly expanded to service the sugar industry, manufacturing many of the sugar mills around Maryborough, Proserpine and Mackay. Walkers then branched into shipbuilding and constructing locomotives. Its foundry shipyard was one of the nation’s leading builders of naval ships, barges and dredges, building 68 ships between 1877 and 1974, when the shipyard closed.
Walkers also built the state’s first steam engine locomotive, the ‘Mary Ann’ (pictured), which had a test run in 1873 and operated on a timber-built tramway. The company subsequently won a contract in 1876 to build 30 B15-class locomotives for then Queensland Railways, and went on to build diesel and electric locomotives, including high-speed Tilt Trains.
The company enjoyed a strong history of leadership, from its founders John Walker, James Wood, Thomas Braddock Snr, and W.T. Sandry, through to Dr Walter Hughes CBE (1917-1999). Dr Hughes, a leading shipbuilder at BHP, joined Walkers in 1954, became chairman in 1978, then served on the board when Walkers merged with Evans Deakin Industries in 1980. He retired the following year.
In 2001, Walkers/Evans Deakin Industries became part of the Downer Group. Images
