We are supporting people and businesses in the Albury to Illabo area with opportunities to work, learn and grow their business.
The Riverina in southwest NSW owns the title of Australia’s food bowl producing fruit, vegetables, almonds, rice, olives and canola oil.
Riverina Oils is located on the doorstep of the Inland Rail alignment and Riverina Intermodal Freight and Logistics hub (RIFL) and stands to reap the opportunities associated with improved freight infrastructure.
It’s at times like these you realise how important your community really is. We spent time in one of our communities, the beautiful town of Junee in southern NSW.
A tight-knit town with a proud rail history… but we’ll let the locals tell you all about it!

Scholarships for local university students
The Inland Rail Scholarship Program supports students from local communities through their full undergraduate course.We have partnered with Charles Sturt University, the University of Southern Queensland and La Trobe University to offer scholarships to regional students pursuing studies and careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) and related fields.
Students who live along the Inland Rail route are invited to apply for scholarships valued up to $20,000, or the equivalent of $5,000 for every year of study during the undergraduate degree.Indigenous people and those experiencing financial hardship are particularly encouraged to apply for assistance.

We are pleased to support local community groups to run events and activities through our Community Sponsorships and Donations Program.
We offer four open rounds of funding each year.
