Regional Development Australia is a partnership between the Australian, NSW and Local governments to develop and strengthen the regional communities of Australia. Regional Development Australia Southern Inland (RDA Southern Inland) has a pivotal role in ensuring the sustainability of the region and works with all sectors of the community. The Southern Inland region covers the local government areas of Wingecarribee, Goulburn-Mulwaree, Palerang, Queanbeyan, Cooma-Monaro, Snowy River, Bombala, Tumut, Yass Valley, Harden, Young, Boorowa and Upper Lachlan.
Praxis Interactive first redeveloped the RDA Southern Inland website in mid-2011 into a more dynamic and engaging platform for their increasing number of visitors. This new site performed well for more than two years, but by mid-2013, traffic via smartphone and tablet devices had dramatically increased. RDA Southern Inland approached Praxis once again with a desire to freshen the site's design and to make it responsive to cater for the mobile market.
Using Praxis CMS, we designed an attractive, modern responsive theme for the new site, and combined it with the powerful features provided by the CMS. The staff at RDA Southern Inland have full control over the layout and content of the site, using drag-and-drop widgets to control many features for greater flexibility.
