Research, collaboration, innovation, and sustainability collide
Surrounded by rich agricultural land, the AgriPark is located within CSU's Wagga Campus, in the heart of the Riverina, and provides the perfect backdrop for our agribusiness and innovation ecosystem to evolve.
The first thing you'll notice about the AgriPark is space.
The AgriPark precinct is 19 hectares with 23 serviced lots available to be developed to meet your individual requirements while maintaining sensitivity to the surrounding buildings and landscape within the grounds of Australia's first carbon neutral University.
The sheer scale of the site provides real opportunity for growth while the regional setting is also a pleasant and relaxed place to live and work.
Much more than just office space
When you join the AgriPark, you become part of an ecosystem of knowledge-rich businesses and organisations focused on innovation, collaboration and discovery.
The AgriPark has been designed to facilitate cross-pollination of ideas. Our 2 hectares of Commons provides a large communal space that allows people to meet, share ideas and engage in collaborative activities such as exhibitions, conferences, pop-up markets and networking.
Our Masterplan also features an innovative Social Spine connecting the Park with the Charles Sturt University campus through pedestrian and bicycle links. Low density developments and the inclusion of greenhouses will ensure the AgriPark remains true to its rural setting.
Along with being home to a variety of agrisciences, agrifood and agribusiness companies, the precinct will also accommodate teaching and learning spaces, social learning environments, research and science spaces, conference and exhibition areas, and food, beverage and retail outlets.
The AgriPark includes:
- 23 serviced lots for individual, purpose-built tenant facilities (occupancy terms negotiable)
- 'Ready-made' accommodation, including refurbished and repurposed existing buildings
- A large open space Commons, especially designed to foster collaboration
- A 'green' Social Spine providing walking trails, cycleways, covered lunch areas and water features
- Shared facilities, retail outlets and serviced offices.
Co-location at the AgriPark will suit a wide range of businesses and enterprises, specialist agronomic supply companies, private agricultural research and extension providers, food research and product development companies, agricultural advisors, animal nutrition and veterinary pharmaceutical companies, industry associations, State and Federal Government agencies and CSU research partners.
Invitations to be located in the Park will be considered based on a wide range of factors, including:
- Synergy with the region
- Alignment with Charles Sturt University values and research interests
- Ability to contribute to a cohesive program to tackle complex issues
- Potential to offer new emerging opportunities for the region.
Each occupancy will consist of fit-for-purpose accommodation developed and maintained by the University. The design of the buildings will be determined through a vigorous briefing process in line with the design guidelines developed for the AgriPark and CSU's standards.
Occupancy terms are negotiable.
