Queensland is the largest producer of natural gas in Australia, although it only accounts for around 15% of Australia's consumption of piped gas. Most Queenslanders use bottled LNG, which makes up 90% of the state's consumption.

Depending on which provider you're with, you could be paying up to an average of $672 per year, while other plans may charge as little as $513 for an average household's usage. That's a saving of up to $159.

Best gas provider in Queensland

If you're living in Queensland, the 3 best gas providers are Globird Energy, AGL and Discover Energy.

Although "best" is up for debate, we based our choices on plan prices and how many complaints each one had. GloBird had very few complaints and was the cheapest, while Discover cost the same but had a higher proportion of complaints. AGL took the second spot because of its gigantic customer base as well as a relatively low number of complaints, although it was more expensive.

Gas prices in Queensland: What should you expect to pay?

Queensland residents on Australian Gas Networks (AGN) paid a median of 7.74c/MJ with a market offer, while those with Allgas as their distributor paid 9.07c/MJ. These are the highest median rates paid for natural gas across all 5 states and territories included in the report.

However, your energy bills will always depend on the exact plan you have and how much gas you're consuming.

The median annual charge paid for gas in Queensland on AGN is $560, based on data from the Annual Retail Markets Report (2020–2021). This is for a household with the average gas consumption of 19.8MJ per day.

Fortunately, there isn't a huge range in prices for Queenslanders, with the prices bottoming out at $513 and rising to a maximum of $672. Choosing a good plan will save you money, regardless.

But that still means you stand the chance of saving up to $159 annually by comparing gas provider prices.

How do I get the best gas deals in Queensland?

If you're in the process of comparing gas retailers, you'll need to consider a few important things to get the best deal. Take note of:

      • Your usage. Gas plans generally work on block pricing, where usage rates fall the more gas you use each day. If you have really high usage daily, you could benefit from a provider with cheap later blocks.
      • Supply charges. You'll be charged a flat fee simply for being connected to the network. If you don't use that much gas, it can be worthwhile to aim for a low supply charge.
      • Benefit/discount periods. A number of plans have discounts that depend on you meeting conditions (like paying on time) or end after 12 months. Be careful of plans with low prices that are dependent on discounts which can later expire.
