Abstract: This paper forms the basis for considering what might be part of a national remote and regional transport strategy. It was prepared to assist with discussion at the National Remote and Regional Transport Infrastructure and Services Forum. It was developed by an inter-jurisdictional working group with transport agency representatives from South Australia, Western Australia, Queensland and the Northern Territory. The paper focuses on the challenges and opportunities of all modes of freight and passenger transport and covers the key transport priority areas: 1. Infrastructure 2. Services 3. Regulation.
