Business in Goulburn

Close to Sydney and Canberra

Goulburn was historically a regional centre dependent on a large railway workshop, big wool stores and textile mills, today the city looks to a future in the new economy. 

Being so close to Sydney and Canberra – yet proudly independent of these major centres – Goulburn is ideally situated for businesses and individuals from such diverse fields as IT, communications, retail, distribution and logistics, engineering, mines, renewable energy and building.

Council actively encourages development which positively contributes to the region’s economic, social, cultural and environmental resources. Council also provides a high level of service to facilitate and expedite the development application process and is eager to work with businesses.

With several mining projects, NSW’s largest operating windfarm (plus many more in the area), a new transmodal interchange hub – and the  Canberra International Airport located only 90kms away – the business centre that is Goulburn can only grow in stature and prosperity.
