Home to almost a third of Australia’s population and the powerhouse of the nation’s economy, NSW offers unmatched opportunity for business and growth. A sustainable future where everyone has the opportunity to share in the prosperity and supporting our regions sits at the heart of our advocacy.
Through our work, events and programs, we deliver value for all our NSW members to uplift the industry and make sure our state maintains its nation-leading position.
The Hunter & Central Coast, Illawarra Shoalhaven and Western Sydney regions have the largest regional economies in the state and are part of the Six Mega City Region.
Our regional offices provide leadership and collaboration with industry and government stakeholders to ensure our regions thrive.
From Penrith to Parramatta and Wollondilly to Windsor, Western Sydney is Australia’s third largest economy and contributes $104 billion to gross domestic product.
By 2036, Western Sydney will be home to three million people. Significant investment in growth infrastructure is required to lift the quality of living for the people who call this region home now and in the future.
Hunter and Central Coast
The Hunter is Australia’s largest regional economy with more than $57 billion in economic output.
The region is supported by a professional and skilled workforce and strong education, health, energy, resources, tourism, arts, manufacturing and defence sectors. This is underpinned by a significant and diversified property sector.
At the heart of the Hunter region is a number of growing city centres, undergoing transformation through public and private investment to serve a growing population.
The Illawarra Shoalhaven region, with Wollongong as its regional capital, is becoming one of the most popular regions to live, work and play.
It is the third largest regional economy in New South Wales, the second major trade gateway for Greater Sydney and is key to the future growth of the Six City Mega Region.
It is close to both Eastern Sydney and the Aerotropolis being established around the Western Sydney Airport that will form strong links with Port Kembla.
The NSW Division of the Property Council established its Precincts Committee in 2021 to bring together government, industry and anchor asset-owning stakeholders in recognition of the importance of precincts as economic drivers and civic places.
A new report has shone a light on the importance of property’s workhorse assets – industrial properties – revealing a staggering $1.2 trillion worth of goods flow through Australia’s ‘big sheds’ every year.

The role of the New South Wales Division Council is to best represent the collective interests of New South Wales members. Members are nominated by industry peers and appointed for a two-year term, with the New South Wales President also securing a position on the National Board.

The Champions of Change Coalition is a globally recognised strategy for advancing gender equality and building respectful, inclusive workplaces.

Girls in Property is a program that informs high school students of the various career paths available across the property industry. It aims to generate a more diverse pipeline of talent by encouraging more women into the sector.
