Living and working along the Great Ocean Road is a sought after lifestyle. The whole region is expanding rapidly as young families, owner operators and retirees seek this coastal way of living and the work-life benefits it brings. There is something for everyone.
Inspired by the Surf Coast, many artists are relocating along this coast line, and participate in the annual Artist’s Trail to get known locally and nationally.
Already an international landmark for surfing, there are many people interested in participating in other leisure or competitive sports in this area. For example cycling, trail running, and stand-up paddle boarding are finding their way into large scale events along the Great Ocean Road. Long weekends and school holidays attract vast numbers of fans to these national events.
Owner operators of small business are also finding that this area encapsulates what they are looking for, for a healthy lifestyle. There are many groups and community initiatives available to support new business.

There are also many other opportunities for you to advertise your business to residents, holiday home owners and visitors to the area, other than our Great Ocean Road Business Directory. There is a Torquay Business and Commerce Association, Geelong Chamber of Commerce, and further support groups for women in this region who are starting a new business and require assistance. Contact us if you would like to know more.
The Great Ocean Road Locals Business Directory was born when we tried to find local businesses to work on our Torquay-based property, but there was no easy-to-use online directory to achieve this. So we set out to create one to make it convenient and quick for businesses to be found online; and for residents, holiday home owners and visitors to connect with local business owners.
We have a closed Facebook group, to connect like-minded entrepreneurs and business owners who will encourage and inspire one another in a supportive environment. Join our group if you are a business owner, and you’ll immediately identify with the diverse group of owners there, who have the opportunity to connect with one another.
