Growing Our South

The Growing Our South initiative helps to implement major infrastructure and community projects across the Peel, Wheatbelt, South-West and Great Southern regions. Growing Our South has an allocation of $600 million over five years, made possible by the State Government’s Royalties for Regions (RfR) program.

The GSDC works with a wide range of project partners to develop business cases for Growing Our South in support of priority projects arising from the Great Southern Regional Investment Blueprint.
