Our priorities for the Great Southern align with the State Government’s strategic themes for regional development.

To deliver for the Great Southern, we work to maintain and grow its existing strengths and identify opportunities to develop new endeavours. Stable jobs and resilient commercial activity arise in diverse economies.

Among the key areas of strength and potential are primary production, premium foods, wine and other beverages. Many of the region’s jobs are in sectors such as education and training, healthcare and social assistance, and retail and hospitality. We see further potential in tourism, the creative industry, aquaculture, Noongar enterprises and film sectors.

Healthcare and Social Assistance

Health care facilities are provided in Albany and regional towns. Home care, seniors’ services and assisted living provide employment for a significant number of people. We aim to ensure that services provided in the region are comparable to services in the metropolitan area.
