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:
- undertake tertiary education
- 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:
