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 (RiFL) hub 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:

  • Renewables;
  • Sustainability and recycling;
  • Advanced manufacturing;
  • Value-added 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 across the world.

Next steps

After extensive community and stakeholder consultation, the draft master plan is now on exhibition. The master planning process included a range of technical studies to understand heritage, ecological, social and economic considerations for the precinct.
