Anecdotal evidence from rural property holders shows how COVID-19 has actually helped them during the pandemic.

A recent article on Commercial Real Estate outlines how several property holders have been able to diversify and grow their income during the pandemic.

Supplementing traditional farm income with agritourism is helping several landowners through this crisis.

A 2800-hectare sheep and cattle farm in NSW has taken on six casual staff and one full-time staff member to support their accommodation venture. The venture currently brings in a turnover equal to the farm income with an added bonus of a higher profit margin.

Farms with accommodation options are finding people who usually holiday overseas are opting for rural experiences and accommodation options.

In Queensland alone agritourism is forecast to grow to $5 billion by 2030.

With the recent update to the Noosa Plan and changes to short-term accommodation now is the time to review your offering. Even if you are not in the Noosa shire understanding what’s allowed under the zoning laws applicable to you is important if investing in a new venture.

Russell and the team at RG Strategic were amazing throughout our whole Development Application with council. To be honest, I don't think we would have even made the move to our new premises with how daunting a Material Change of Use Application is. We are experts in human movement, not this stuff, so we are super grateful these guys made the process seamless and also speedy! Council told us a 3-5 month application process and these guys got it in right on the 3 month mark for us! Thanks for your patience and professionalism guys! We appreciate it more than words can say.

We recently used RG Strategic for our food, liquor and design approvals for our new venture at 'The Captains Daughter' in Peregian Beach. Russell and his team have been great to work with and made the process seamless. We got a lot of support with regular site meetings and the ability to call and discuss any issues as they arose for quick solutions. We would highly recommend RG Strategic for all approval processes.
