Young has been a flourishing regional centre since it was first established over 150 years ago.
Originally founded as a pastoral settlement, the town shot ahead with the discovery of gold in the 1860s and the rush has been on ever since.
A resilient and diverse economy has supported consistent population growth. Today, Young services a regional population base of 57,000 and is strategically placed to continue to prosper with other major regional centres such as Wagga Wagga, Orange, Bathurst and Canberra all just over 1.5 - 2 hours drive away.
Major industries of agriculture, horticulture, construction, engineering and steel fabrication, retail, service industries, health care and education and training mean that residents enjoy relatively stable employment and advancement opportunities along with very comfortable standard of living.
