The Welcome Experience


The Welcome Experience is designed to facilitate, attract, prepare and welcome essential workers to regional, rural and remote NSW.


The program matches and connects new essential workers with local people and resources to help them settle in and feel at home in their new community faster. When people feel part of the community they live in, they have a better lifestyle experience helping them to stay in communities longer.


The Welcome Experience will support new essential workers to create their connection to community and their new home quickly and smoothly, helping to keep essential workers and their families in regional towns longer, delivering frontline services and building stronger communities.


The Welcome Experience is being rolled out initially in eight pilot locations in 2023 – Bega, Broken Hill, Coffs Harbour, Corowa, Griffith, Goulburn, Muswellbrook and Walgett.


The Welcome Experience in Walgett connects you and your family with local people and local resources to help you settle in and feel at home in your new community faster.  Department Regional NSW will be operating The Welcome Experience in Walgett.
