What is this Region?

The Great Southern takes in several hundred kilometres of the State’s southern coastline. Its ancient geography includes the highest ranges in southern Western Australia, deep forests, productive farmland and spectacular coastal scenery.

Residents and visitors enjoy an enviable lifestyle and benefit from a sturdy economy that offers plenty of opportunity. Primary production is the backbone of the region’s economy, through wool, broadacre cropping, livestock, timber and fishing. However, tourism and viticulture are also longstanding contributors.

The Great Southern region includes the local government authorities of: Albany (City), Broomehill- Tambellup, Cranbrook, Denmark, Gnowangerup, Jerramungup, Katanning, Kent, Kojonup, Plantagenet and Woodanilling.
