Selecting a location to grow your business

NSW offers many opportunities across our state for business who are looking to establish, grow and innovate.

No matter what your business needs, NSW has a location to support your growth agenda. From key metropolitan areas in and around Sydney, to our regional hubs of Newcastle and Wollongong, or the vast space of regional NSW, we have a location that meets your needs.

Western Sydney

Western Sydney is a focus of development and growth for both the Australian and New South Wales governments. The Western Sydney Airport, currently under construction, brings with it a unique opportunity: the chance for investors to define their place in a thriving Aerotropolis surrounding the Airport.

Planning for the Aerotropolis is moving at a fast pace. The Airport is underway, as wide-reaching road and rail networks grow around it. Now is the time to join together as we create Australia's newest 21st century city.

Western Parkland City

A record A$20 billion of public funding has been committed to develop the new Western Sydney Airport, Aerotropolis and select industry precincts. The broad Western Parkland City area provides significant opportunities in health, freight and logistics, tourism, advanced manufacturing and food.

The Western Sydney Airport, currently under construction will provide unparalleled access to and from Sydney. Now is the time to join together as we create Australia's newest 21st century city.

Greater Parramatta and the Olympic Peninsula (GPOP)

The connected, unifying heart of Greater Sydney

The NSW Government’s vision for Sydney is to transform it into a metropolis of three connected cities – the Western Parklands City, the Central River City and the Eastern Harbour City.

In each city, residents will live within 30 minutes of their jobs, education and health facilities, services and quality public spaces.

The Central River City is located at the geographic centre of Greater Sydney and positioned strategically between the Eastern Harbour City and the Western Parkland City.

The Greater Parramatta and Olympic Peninsula (GPOP) is located at the heart of the Central River City.

This region spans 6,000 hectares and runs 13 kilometres from east to west.

GPOP is the geographic heart of Sydney, it is also the population heart.

Sydney Technology & Innovation Precinct

The NSW Government is joining forces with industry and the community to help design a major new technology and innovation precinct in central Sydney.

The precinct will create new jobs, turbocharge the economy, and cement Sydney as the innovation capital of Australia and a world player in technology.

A panel of experts from industry, education and government sectors, headed by Jobs for NSW chair David Thodey, established a vision for the precinct. The panel provided its report to the NSW Government in February 2019 setting out the vision for the precinct. The panel report is available here.

The area for the precinct will stretch from Ultimo through Central Station to Redfern Station and Eveleigh Rail Yards, and across to Camperdown. The area was chosen as it is already home to Australia’s largest cluster of start-up companies, major tertiary education and health institutions, and has established transport links.


Newcastle is NSW’s second largest city, and forms part of the Hunter region, which is the state’s largest regional economy. Its diverse industries include advanced manufacturing, mining, health services, defence, wine, food and tourism. The Port of Newcastle is also the largest port on Australia’s East Coast and the world’s leading coal export port.


Renowned for its world class steel making, coal mining and tourism industries, Wollongong offers a competitive base for businesses with access to domestic and global markets. Wollongong is NSW’s third largest city and is diversifying and experiencing strong growth in the knowledge services, advanced manufacturing and defence sectors.

Regional NSW

Rich with natural resources, regional NSW produces one-third of the total NSW gross state product, with thriving agricultural and mining industries and strong manufacturing, clean energy, tourism and service sectors.

When you base your business in regional NSW, you can take advantage of efficient connections to Sydney, as well as Australian and international markets through multiple world-class rail, road and air corridors. This makes it a cost-effective alternative to Sydney and other major cities.
