The Wheatbelt is a region of growth, diversity and opportunity. Land and house values, safety and a strong sense of community are drivers for in-migration.
The Wheatbelt is a region consisting of 42 local governments, 200 communities, five distinct sub-regions with five sub-regional centres and nearly 10,000 small businesses.
Across the Region, there are examples of great collaboration at a regional and sub-regional level.

- alliances such as the Wheatbelt Health MOU Group, which brings together local, regional, state and federal representation to advocate for health services across the region;
- not-for-profit groups such as Wheatbelt NRM (land management; Wheatbelt Business Network Inc (business development); Directions Workforce Solutions Inc (workforce development); and sporting associations.
