With its spectacular coastline, scenic rainforests and magnificent beaches, Victoria’s Surf Coast is one of Australia’s great tourist draw cards. As one of the fastest growing regional municipalities in the State, Surf Coast Shire is experiencing significant growth. Residents enjoy the dramatic coastal scenery and superb lifestyle as much as the visitors.

The Shire is located in southwest Victoria, 20 minutes from Geelong and 75 minutes from Melbourne.

Surf Coast Shire is a great place to work and do business. Business opportunities abound in the shire, with a focus on tourism and easy proximity of our strong rural sector. The shire also has a range of diverse manufacturing, agricultural and other business, supported by information technology services.
