The initiative allows Australians to register their interest to discover new adventures and experience a rich sense of community via and new Shift Regional platform.

He said comparatively, the population of Victoria grew by 20.16 per cent in the same decade and as a result, the Grampians region job market was experiencing a labour shortage.
