About us

Champions of the Bush is a group of businesses and organisations that operate proudly in regional Australia. Members are both 'champions' in their own right and committed to championing the cause of regional and rural Australia.

The organisation was formed in 2002 and has brought together individuals and businesses that are passionate in their commitment to rural and regional areas.

Our members have made a major investment in the country, both personally and financially and are committed to sustainable regional development.

We share a common concern that society currently undervalues the contributions made to the wealth of our nation by the 30 per cent of Australians who live outside metropolitan areas.
Our Founding Members included:
  • Brown Brothers Wines, Milawa
  • PFD Foodservices
  • Patties Foods
  • Telstra Country Wide
  • Cook, Green and Moore, Bendigo
  • NAB
Tahbilk, SED Advisory and other regionally-based businesses joined the group at a later point. In addition to these pioneering members, over thirty other businesses are now associate members of Champions of the Bush through their involvement in the Regional Executive Forum which was established by Champions of the Bush.
