Avoca is an attractive rural town with a distinct character and sense of place. The town is situated on the banks of the Avoca River and probably owes its origins to the mining industry of the Avoca Valley. Avoca and the surrounding area has considerable potential to develop as a tourism hotspot. The development of sustainable tourism and service related industries could yield significant economic benefits in terms of job creation and investment. The land zoned in the current County Development Plan has potential to accommodate approximately 120 residential units.
