What People in the Know are Saying:

In regional areas, spending was fastest in NSW (4.4 per cent) and Victoria (4.1 per cent), with Walgett NSW (28.7 per cent), Yarriambiack, Victoria (21.0 per cent), Gannawarra in Victoria (20 per cent) and Inverell in NSW (19.9 per cent) the fastest growing regions in the country.

  • Margaret Lomas – Chief Executive of Destiny, and Property Investor

Look for a big kicker: something big that’s going to occur in the area, which will guarantee growth. This could be an airport under construction or a new hospital. When there’s infrastructure plans in place, it is a positive sign that population growth and price increases are going to continue.

  • Adam Marshall – Member for Northern Tablelands – 23 June 2017

“For a decade, Inverell has been demanding a new hospital that recognises their enviable position as fastest growing town in the region. Now they’ve got it.”

“This will be the pinnacle for healthcare in the region and greatly improve the delivery of health services for locals. It will mean that those close to Inverell won’t find themselves having to travel for essential services….it will help the rapidly growing town of Inverell attract the specialist doctors”
