What's it like living in Central West New South Wales?

Covering an enormous space of over 63,000 kilometres, the Central West of NSW is home to 177,000 people who reside within the 11 local government areas of Bathurst, Blayney, Cabonne, Cowra, Forbes, Lachlan, Lithgow, Oberon, Orange, Parkes and Weddin.

The Central West area was originally inhabited by the Wiradjuri people who were the largest group in New South Wales. Many significant historical sites still exist in the region including 56 within the Yathong Nature Reserve, west of Condoblin. The Central West was not initially favourable for European settlement until the gold rush of the mid-1800s drew many people to the areas surrounding Bathurst.

Mining still retains a significant role in the local economy, due to the rich mineral deposits scattered throughout the region. The fertile mineralised soil has also fostered a booming agricultural industry, resulting in excellent fresh produce and wine. The areas east is higher and hillier and receives a heavier annual rainfall which supports vineyards and vegetable growing, whereas the flatter and drier west support grain-crops and pastoralism.

The cities of Bathurst, Orange and Dubbo, are the larger centres in the Central West, with real estate in these towns consisting of large houses on quarter acre blocks and even a few low-rise apartments. Property in these regional centres have benefited from a 'ripple effect', and have seen growth over the last few years. Outside of town centres property with acreage is plentiful. Bathurst, Orange and Dubbo are home to campuses of Charles Sturt University, the leading provider of university education in the region.
