The Queensland cabinet will meet in Mount Isa on November 18.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said she and her ministers would be in town to discuss issues important to the north west.
"Mount Isa and the whole north west region is an important region to Queensland," the Premier said.
"Whether we're talking about minerals or beef cattle, we know this an important region to Queensland."
The Premier said the former state minister and mayor of Mount Isa Tony McGrady had been on the phone to her to ask that the cabinet convene in Mount Isa.
"Tony has remained a very passionate local and is in constant contact making sure Mount Isa and the north west is getting the attention it deserves," the Premier said.
"This is a listening government and I was happy to listen to Tony's suggestion that we hold a cabinet meeting in Mount Isa."
Mr McGrady said ministers would benefit from meeting Mount Isa locals and hearing first hand about the issues that matter most to them.
"The Premier and her Government have a well deserved reputation for listening to Queenslanders and for devoting their attention to all parts of the State and it is important that they continue this policy," Mr McGrady said.
"I believe that it is important that they continue to actively demonstrate their willingness to get out to every corner of Queensland, especially a place like Mount Isa that makes such a massive economic contribution to the North West, the state of Queensland and Australia."
The regional engagement will include a community reception and a meeting with regional mayors as well as ministerial meetings with stakeholders.
The Premier said that her government had a long history of delivering for the north west including:
- A $500 million plan to boost mineral freight exports on the Mount Isa rail line
- Repairing the Mount Isa rail line after February's monsoonal rain to speed up travel time by 50 minutes
- Extending 100% FIFO bans to the Barbara Project and the Mount Colin Mine
