FREIGHT AND LOGISTICS

The precinct’s new Riverina Intermodal Freight and Logistics (RiFL) hub and its location along the Inland Rail presents a unique opportunity to expand existing freight and logistics operations.

The precinct has direct access to Port Botany and Port Melbourne and, with the completion of Inland Rail, this will be extended to Brisbane.

AGRIBUSINESS

There are numerous opportunities to capitalise on Wagga Wagga’s reputation as NSW’s ‘food bowl’ with potential to add value at every stage of the supply chain. Wagga Wagga’s location offers efficient market access which means investors can target retail-ready, high-value products to premium global markets.

The Bomen Business Park, within the activation precinct, is home to food manufacturers, transport companies and a range of enterprises already benefiting from colocation.

The precinct creates further opportunities for investment and growth in advanced manufacturing and agribusiness with potential to add value at every stage of the supply chain.

ADVANCED MANUFACTURING

Wagga Wagga offers access to a highly skilled and diversified workforce and is already home to many advanced manufacturing businesses. Precinct-wide digital infrastructure offers fantastic opportunities to expand and value-add through automation and supply chain solutions which reduces costs and improves product traceability.

INNOVATION, SKILLS AND EDUCATION

The Wagga Wagga precinct will build on the region’s existing reputation for international agricultural research and technology commercialisation by offering opportunities for researchers and industry to collaborate on innovation.

There are research and development opportunities in aviation, defence, Industry 4.0, health and education.  
Regional Growth NSW Development Corporation is also working with partners such as TAFE and Charles Sturt University to provide education and training opportunities in the precinct which align with skill demands.

RENEWABLE ENERGY AND RECYCLING

The Wagga Wagga precinct will be one of Australia’s first UNIDO Eco Industrial parks where companies can gain a competitive advantage through a circular economy. The precinct ultimately will generate 100% of its own energy from renewable sources and will incorporate infrastructure for sustainable, cost-effective energy sources such as bioenergy and hydrogen.

The region already boasts successful recycling and renewable energy companies within the Bomen Business Park which now forms part of the precinct. This includes a lead and battery recycling facility which provides waste recovery services, thereby minimising waste streams and landfill.

With increased freight and logistics connections, the precinct offers opportunities for other higher value industries which recycle products.

Spark Infrastructure also has a presence in the precinct with the 120 megawatt Bomen Solar Farm. The precinct allows for additional energy generation opportunities.
