Regional Development Investment in the Great Southern

Royalties for Regions projects have created new jobs; built new and better infrastructure and facilities; and strengthened the areas of health services, education, aged persons care, and tourism.

Just as importantly, many of the projects mean that regional communities are now better connected and families are more likely to stay in regional WA rather than shift elsewhere to pursue other employment, education, health or retirement options.

Evaluations on housing and health demonstrate that Royalties for Regions funding has improved livability, housing affordability and generated a sense of community in the region. In addition projects such as Albany Community Hospice, New Hawthorn House and Katanning Town centre revitalisation have generated jobs, economic growth and built capabilities.

The case studies below illustrate the effect of Royalties for Regions funding within the Great Southern.
