Business investment and lifestyle


Our region is home to significant career, education, business and investment opportunities that will allow you to share in our lifestyle.

Significant investment in infrastructure is positioning our region as a burgeoning growth centre with a bright economic outlook. Our region is now considered the top destination for property growth in Australia with estimated growth of a further 20% over the next three years.  

Career, education, business and investment opportunities are aplenty. Here you will also find a welcoming and talented community and an enviable and affordable coastal lifestyle that really will allow you to ‘holiday forever’.  

The region is serviced by a network of air, road and rail infrastructure that radiates north, south and west. It is an easy four hour drive to Sydney and continued Pacific Highway upgrades are supporting even faster connections to the Queensland growth areas of Brisbane and the Gold Coast. 

The Port Macquarie-Hastings region offers a strong and diverse regional economy. An abundance of business opportunities and high levels of population growth combined with an idyllic lifestyle and climate makes this regional hub an irresistible destination.
