Grow and prosper in Goulburn

The Goulburn region is home to vibrant communities, fertile soils and a pleasant climate.

Agriculture and processing are major employers here, including in the fruit and vegetable industry, along with dairy, cattle, sheep, and grain production. There are also plentiful career options in electricity, gas, water and waste services, health care and social assistance, manufacturing, tourism, transport, retail, trades and professional services.

The Victorian Government is ensuring Goulburn communities continue to be great places to live, work and invest, by delivering a range of improvements to public transport, country roads, tourism infrastructure and health facilities, and through initiatives such as Free TAFE for priority courses.

The 2019-20 Budget provides further tax relief for rural and regional businesses, with the regional payroll tax rate to be reduced to 25 per cent of the metropolitan rate by 2022-23.

Locals will also benefit from $2.5 million new Health and Community Services training facility at GO TAFE in Seymour and a share of the $340 million for new VLocity trains to run on the North East line, while families in Strathbogie will be among the first to benefit from the roll out of universal three-year-old kinder next year
