Stakeholder collaboration and ownership is at the foundation of good regional policy. In the larger states where the regions are remote from their capital and very remote from Canberra, taking the time to understand the unique characteristics of each region provides a firm foundation for policy development and implementation. Following this logic, the question does “regional Australia” actually exist is pertinent. In Western Australia there are nine regions, some share similarities but all are different in their demography, economy and climate. Understanding the regions, rather than regional Australia is important to understanding how policy will impact differently in different regions.
