Networking Event

Record farmland values & the implications for Australian agriculture

A birds eye view over a farm

Australian agricultural land values. Booming prices, supercharged market activity and ever-increasing competition. It seems to be unstoppable. Or is it? Is the market over-inflated, or does it reflect a thriving agribusiness sector, primed for further growth?

Can Australia’s farmers and agribusinesses generate a return from these record land prices? And how would lifting inflation and interest rate rises influence this dynamic?

Join us for this special networking evening event hosted by event sponsor CBRE, as we hear from our panel of experts including:

  • David Goodfellow, Managing Director, Agribusiness at CBRE
  • Adrian Goonan, Head of Cropping & Diversified Agriculture, Warakarri Asset Management
  • Andrew Smith, Head of Sales, Rural Bank

Moderated by ABC Country Hour host Warwick Long, the speakers will move beyond the rhetoric and get to the facts of the matter. They’ll have a level-headed conversation around where the industry is at, and what possibly could happen next. It’s not to be missed.
