Orana means ‘Welcome’ in Wiradjuri, the language of one of the region’s first people.
The Orana region is a unique proposition for investment and prosperity.
The region has one of the most diverse economies in regional Australia, is widely recognised as the commercial hub of western NSW and maintains an enviable lifestyle for residents and a stunning natural environment.
With a robust commercial base and an ambition for greater population, prosperity and progress the Orana region provides a wealth of opportunities to live, work, invest and develop. The region is proud of its economic heritage founded on a strong base of agriculture and resources.
With a Gross Regional Product of $8 billion (AU) strong, growing key industries including mining, agriculture, government, tourism and community services, the region’s economy is thriving.
It is easy to do business here: Australia ranks 11th in the world in terms of ease of doing business and it is something the leadership across the region are passionate about.
Our Local, State, and Federal Government representatives present aligned leadership, assisted by regional bodies who coordinate activity across government boundaries.
