Economic considerations

Eurobodalla Shire’s economy was previously based on dairying, forestry and fishing. However, today the region's economy is far more diverse and is based on tourism, healthcare, agriculture and construction.

Whilst our local economy has been impacted by the 2019/2020 summer bushfires and COVID-19, there is also significant public infrastructure investment in the region. This long-term investment provides jobs and sustains the local economy.

Covid-19 economic outlook

The 2019/20 summer bushfires and COVID-19 will continue to have a negative impact on economic activity.
