Delivering Infrastructure & Services For Our Communities

The VFF advocates for the infrastructure and services regional communities need and deserve including better roads and freight, telecommunications, community and health services.

We believe regional communities are the best place to live and work. Agriculture is the key to providing jobs and prosperity in rural and regional communities. But to do that, farmers need infrastructure to help them access markets and the workforce. Just like all Australians, farmers and their families also deserve access to basic services that people in the city might take for granted like education, healthcare and mobile phone reception.
