One of the biggest selling points of the Evocities is the opportunity to live life in the State’s stunning natural surrounds.
All the perks of the metropolitan lifestyle are right on your doorstep yet you can take a 15-minute drive from the Central Business District of any one of the seven Evocities and be enveloped into a picturesque rural vista.
From the lush banks of the majestic Murray River in Albury, to the stunning cool-climate vineyards of Orange, the Evocities lay claim to spectacular scenery.
And what comes part and parcel with the stunning natural surrounds of the seven regional cities is a plethora of food and wine, lovingly farmed by locals and sold fresh to Evocities residents at regular farmers markets.
Embrace the paddock-to-plate approach and buy seasonal produce direct from the soils and water basins of your new region.
We’ve put together a guide to the regular farmers markets held in each of the Evocities so you can chat with the farmer and mingle with your local community as soon as you make the move.
