National Growth Areas Alliance

As the peak group representing Australia’s fast growing outer suburbs, the National Growth Areas Alliance simply seeks a fair go for the millions who live on the outskirts of our capital cities.

From Penrith in Sydney’s west through to Wanneroo in Perth’s north, the residents of our outer suburbs don’t have the same access to infrastructure that other Australians enjoy.

Already there are nightmare commutes on our roads and public transport: and that’s without the additional pressure of another 2.5 million residents in the next 15 years.

Governments must act now and invest in infrastructure to ease congestion, cost of living and stress. That foresight will also lead to improved equity, more local jobs and a permanent boost in national GDP.


The 2016 NGAA Congress on 14-15 November will explore the theme of 'Building the Outer Suburbs of the Future'.

Hosted by the City of Wanneroo in Perth’s north, highlights will include addresses from

  • Shadow Minister for Infrastructure and Transport The Hon. Anthony Albanese MP

  • Greens spokesperson for Housing and Sustainable Cities Senator Scott Ludlam

  • Expert speakers on value capture, city deals, infrastructure financing, growth suburbs funding and peri-urban development.

  •  A field trip to Perth’s northern growth corridor see best practice at work in a Perth growth community
  • Members-only strategic planning workshop
  • The annual NGAA Awards dinner with celebrity MC
