In a year of extraordinary change on a global scale, it was refreshing to be reminded of the strength and resilience of our businesses and broader community over the past year. Our population growth remains strong and house prices averaged $416K at the end of 2020, up 24.9 per cent from December 2019, all while we remain one of the country’s most affordable regions.

In contrast with the immeasurable changes we have felt as a global community recently, we have undergone a period of positive transformation in our district and for our economic development agency.
