Regional support

Connecting businesses with information and support

Regional South Australia encompasses a diverse range of environments, with our regions being home to a vast number of the state's most iconic landscapes and tourist attractions.

There are a range of organisations and programs available to support businesses and workers in South Australia's regions.

Regional Development Australia (RDA)

RDA is an Australian Government initiative that brings together all levels of government to support the development of regional Australia. A national network of RDA committees comprised of local leaders who understand the challenges, opportunities and priorities within their local communities, work with all levels of government, business and community groups to support the economic development of their regions.

Visit Regional Development South Australia for further information about the network and find your local RDA to discover their range of business support services.
