Social and cultural considerations

Eurobodalla Shire has a growing population, however this growth rate is low.

Our community is also ageing at a rate far greater than the national average.

One of the challenges facing Eurobodalla today is retaining its youth population as they develop into young adults. A large proportion of this population leave the region after completing high school.

The most common reasons for the region's youth to leave the area are to:

  1. undertake tertiary education
  2. seek greater work opportunities.

Our community is significantly influenced by tourism with a high proportion of homes vacant throughout the year used primarily as holiday homes.

The strategies and reports on this page provide local, social and cultural information that create a more detailed understanding of the opportunities and issues facing the region:
