Regional Capitals Australia is an alliance of local government associations from around Australia.  

The alliance is working to achieve a network of well-planned and sustainable regional capitals across Australia.

Regional Capitals

A “Regional Capital” is defined as a regional city, located outside the state metropolitan urban growth boundary. A regional capital provides a central point to access essential infrastructure, services, business, employment and education for local residents as well as those in surrounding towns and rural areas. These cities perform a ‘capital city’ role within their regions.

Local Government Leadership

Creating vibrant regional capitals requires not only an investment in infrastructure and services but an investment in thinking – a strategic approach to the challenges and opportunities of sustainable growth. A commitment to strong planning for the future from all levels of government is fundamental.

Regional Capitals Australia seeks to bring about a collaborative approach to the development of Australia’s regional cities.  The group is working with all levels of government to keep the momentum of regionalism moving forward; ensuring strong regional capitals means a strong Australia.
