An Australian Government Initiative

Regional Development Australia


What we do

Regional Development Australia (RDA) committee members are local people developing local solutions to local issues. They build partnerships to develop strategies and deliver sustainable infrastructure and services to their regions.

They also work with each other to identify issues that cross regions.

As the regional development voice of their communities, RDA committees:

  • consult and engage with communities
  • promote and participate in regional programs and initiatives
  • provide information and advice on their region to all levels of government, and
  • support informed regional planning.

Each RDA committee has developed a Regional Plan which outlines priorities for the region and guides them in strengthening their communities.
