Wagga Wagga is booming!
Wagga Wagga is thriving on all fronts, with the latest Economic Snapshot showing the regional city is the perfect place to invest, work and live.
Data collated by Wagga Wagga City Council shows the foundations of growth are strong – including low cost base for development, growing private and public investment, a skilled workforce, positive business environment, and high levels of innovation and collaboration.
The Economic Snapshot also highlights that Wagga Wagga’s population is forecast to grow by at least 21.53 per cent by 2036, coupled with an increase in registered businesses, affordable housing and prime industrial land at one-tenth of the cost of equivalent blocks in Western Sydney.
Wagga Wagga’s prime location between Sydney and Melbourne and proximity to Canberra is reaping economic benefits, while also making it more attractive to visitors.
Visitor numbers are forecast to increase with a number of major projects in the works such as the Wagga Wagga Multisport Cycling Complex at Pomingalarna Park, the Riverside Stage 2 development and a 43km cycle path network.
