National Regional Housing Summit Outcomes and Recommendations


Regional Australia is experiencing change like never before. More people than ever are looking to make a life outside our capital cities, and many have already made the move. Each month internet-advertised job vacancies continue to hover at rates just under 100,000. Demand is highest for professional skilled roles and those fundamental to regional living such as GPs, nurses, allied health professionals, aged care workers and early years educators. However, housing persists as a key barrier to facilitating this growth, with rental vacancies continuing at detrimental lows and new housing playing ‘catchup’ to population needs. This Discussion Paper was used to assist in directing conversation at the National Regional Housing Summit 2024.

This is a brief summary of the recommendations emerging from the Summit discussions and workshop – please refer to the National Regional Housing Summit Outcomes and Recommendations for the full suite of recommendations.
