The Wagga Wagga precinct will capitalise on its location on the Inland Rail to create opportunities across a range of industries to benefit the region.

Plans for Wagga Wagga

The Wagga Wagga precinct will cover an area of approximately 4,500 hectares, including 300 hectares already developed as part of the Bomen Business Park. 

Wagga Wagga’s highly accessible location, courtesy of its rail and road connectivity with Australia’s major cities, creates incredible growth opportunities for existing businesses and new investors in the region. 

The precinct will incorporate the Riverina Intermodal Freight and Logistics Hub (RiFL) to create faster and easier access to national and international markets for regional producers.

 

Industry and employment opportunities

Building on already-planned private and government investments, the precinct will create up to 6,000 new jobs across a range of industries, including:

  • Renewable energy and recycling;
  • Innovation, skills and education;
  • Advanced manufacturing;
  • Agribusiness and value-add agriculture; and
  • Freight and logistics.

The Bomen Business Park is already home to a range of businesses including food manufacturers and transport companies. These existing organisations, plus new investors can benefit from the precinct and make it easier to do business Australia-wide and throughout the world.

Master plan finalised

Following detailed community and stakeholder consultation, the Wagga Wagga Special Activation Precinct master plan and new planning framework, have been finalised.

Precinct delivery

Work on the design and delivery of the precinct, including infrastructure such as roads, sewer, water and electricity services, is underway.

Regional Growth NSW Development Corporation has begun work on the delivery plan and procurement of construction services for the stage 1 infrastructure work.

The delivery plan outlines the process and requirements for a business to set up and operate in the precinct, supporting the streamlined planning process. The delivery plan is expected to go on exhibition in early 2022.
