Culture and Lifestyle
Young’s central location, growing population and the proximity to a surrounding population of approximately 57,000 within a 150 km radius, provides an ideal opportunity for the continued growth and development of the Shire as a regional hub for services and trade.
As an emerging regional centre, Young Shire will strengthen its role in the next 10 years with improved services, facilities and a strong economic base, while preserving the country lifestyle which residents enjoy.
Young has a high degree of liveability with very affordable house prices, mortgage and rental costs when compared to the NSW State average. The Young Shire has a unique and interesting history, and residents and visitors can enjoy the diverse range of sporting, recreation and cultural facilities, as well as its 34 parks, 3 gardens and 9 reserves.
One of the features of the town is the Chinese Tribute Garden, a recognised and significant tourist attraction which greets thousands of visitors to the region annually.
Young’s Golf Course is another major drawcard for the town and has been described as one of the best country courses in NSW. The course is kept in magnificent condition through its constant water supply provided by an innovative reclaimed water scheme, and its short but challenging design will test the technique and accuracy of any golfer.
