Local Jobs for Local People

Living and Working in the Yass Valley

Located on the doorstep of the nation’s capital, Yass Valley boasts a well renowned food and wine scene, numerous education options, employment opportunities and medical and general services, sporting facilities and housing opportunities. This combined with friendly, helpful locals, stunning landscapes and natural wonderlands contribute to why Yass Valley is capturing the interest of people wanting to live, work and invest.

Yass Valley is also home to much of the Canberra Wine district with over 40 vineyards, numerous fine food producers, niche agricultural products and a variety of artisans and crafts people. The region has a busy and diverse events calendar with highlights including Sculptures in the Paddock, a large-scale outdoor event that is proud to also run a concurrent Schools Program, bringing art and artists to many schools in the region.

Situated at the junction of five main highways with Canberra only 45 mins away and Sydney just over 3 hours, Yass Valley is the second highest ranked local government area in regional NSW. Local jobs can be found in the agriculture, forestry and fishing sector, followed by accommodation and food services sector and construction.

Because of Yass’ proximity to Canberra, many people who work in the capital retreat to Yass to relax. In fact, more than half of Yass workers commute out of the Yass area into Canberra and the ACT daily. Commuting to the ACT provides job opportunities in the public sector, construction industry and professional, scientific and technical services sectors.

The city of Yass itself boasts a higher than average rate of both education and income levels. Other industries providing opportunities for those living in the region include tourism, business services, construction, retail trade, fine food production and niche agricultural products.

The region proudly boasts one of the lowest unemployment rates in Australia.
