Regional Development Australia – Central West

Regional Development Australia Central West is a locally managed not-for-profit, part of the national network of 55 RDA Committees funded by the Australian Government, to promote economic development and a stronger NSW Central Western region. Our region extends from Lithgow in the east to Lake Cargelligo in the west and comprises the local government areas of Lithgow, Oberon, Bathurst, Blayney, Orange, Cabonne, Cowra, Parkes, Forbes, Weddin and Lachlan.

We acknowledge and respect the traditional owners and custodians of this region, the Wiradjuri people. We honour their cultural, spiritual, and emotional connection to this land & acknowledge the many other Aboriginal people from other nations and lands who have come to the Central West to live or visit.
