About RDA Illawarra

Regional Development Australia (RDA) Illawarra is the peak regional development consultative organisation for the Illawarra region (Wollongong, Shellharbour and Kiama local government areas).

We are one of the 55 regional bodies within the RDA Australia network - a network of committees commissioned by the Government to support rural, regional, remote and urban communities all across Australia.

We exist because we are committed to ensuring the long term sustainability of Australia’s regions. We are here to work with all sectors of the Illawarra community, including women, young people, Aboriginal Australians and people from a variety of cultural backgrounds.
