Starting a Business

The Murraylands region is widely recognised as strategically important in delivering on growth targets within the economy and population of South Australia. It is an emerging economy that offers excellent value for inward investment, whilst encouraging expansion of existing businesses.

Overall, the Murraylands is very accessible by road and rail, with the potential to establish a commercial airport within the region.
