The housing market in the Northern Rivers region of NSW is moving further out of reach of low-income households and many middle-income households. This fact sheet presents housing and homelessness data for this region and the local government areas within it. Much of the detailed information is from the 2016 Census including rental stress, which was substantially higher in Northern Rivers in 2016 compared to NSW and Australia.

Pressure on regional NSW housing markets is increasing. More recent data shows very low private rental vacancy rates and rising rental costs and increasing pressure on our limited supply of social housing and homelessness support services.
