Beef and sawmilling are the main industries, with dairying, irrigated crops and mining contributing to the economy. The Boyne River, Awoonga Dam and a network of National Parks and forests combine to create a place of great natural beauty and encourage tourism. New residents arriving in the Valley in recent years have found the Valley to be a great place to build a home and retire or an easy place from which to commute to work.
