Inner regional towns are those which are designated as Remoteness Area two (RA2) under the Australian Standard Geographical Classification – Remoteness Areas system (ASGC-RA). These towns are located approximately 50-100km from the Perth centre, in North, South or East locations.
Towns in these areas are generally semi-rural, with larger properties available, and agricultural industries still operating. Most are thriving communities that attract day trippers, due to their close proximity to Perth and many are developing flourishing tourism industries, such as wine and food, to attract visitors. Populations in these towns can range from smaller communities of around 2,000 people to larger centres of 5,500 people.
