The NSW Nationals acknowledge Indigenous Australians as the traditional custodians of our land and work to give them an effective voice in Parliament.
It is vital regional people have access to health services – ranging from nursing posts in remote areas to a doctor in a regional town, to specialists in major regional centres.
The NSW Nationals value investing in improved education outcomes from childcare level right through schooling to vocational and tertiary learning.
The NSW Nationals want to keep NSW moving and to do that we need roads, rail, and ports – both air and sea – to continually improve.
Many regional communities are built around resources – fishing, forestry and mining are just a few of the industries providing vital jobs outside of the cities.
The NSW Nationals have always had a focus on agriculture, a sector worth more than $8 billion to our economy each year. But our support does not stop at farmers, pastoralists, and horticulturalists.
New South Wales is blessed with contrasting and diverse landscapes, from alpine wilderness to seaside beauty, rainforests, and bushland.
There are hundreds of thousands of small businesses in our state, and more than a third of them are in the regions.
