Australia's Regional Centres: Are they part of the nation's network of cities or only when it matters politically?

  • Year: 2011
  • Author: Trevor Budge, Mark Chesterfield
  • Journal Name: State of Australia's Cities Conference
  • Published Location: Melbourne
  • Country: Australia

This paper discusses the periodic emergence of regional Australia as a focus of policy and action, the development of a network of regional centres in Australia, the difficulties and shortcomings in confining a national urban policy to only the very large cities and how regional policy and an urban policy agenda relates to Australia’s ‘non-urban’ cities and larger towns.
