Goulburn - Southern Tablelands, NSW
Goulburn is typical of many regional centres in NSW – it is delivering growth, whether measured by sales activity or price trends.
Goulburn benefits from its position in the growth corridor between Sydney and Canberrra, It has received a Ripple Effect from Sydney’s (previous) growth market and the steadiness of the economy and property market in Canberra.
Goulburn also has its own strong economy driven by healthcare, retail, construction and agriculture.
Goulburn has long been a solid regional centre servicing the Southern Tablelands area of NSW near the ACT border. In the past it has been hampered by water supply issues, with restrictions on residents.
But its prospects have been improved by a $54 million pipeline solution to the water problem and a major injection of economic activity through construction of multiple wind farms.
Long-term, Goulburn will benefit from its proximity to the national capital – with growing numbers living in affordable Goulburn and working in Canberra.
