Our Backyard – Apollo Bay


A new regional tourism organisation is at last a reality for the Great Ocean Road region.

Great Ocean Road Regional Tourism Ltd is being established with the support and recognition of Tourism Victoria and the 5 local government Councils of the region (Surf Coast, Colac Otway, Corangamite, Moyne and Warrnambool) to lead the development, marketing and management of tourism for the region.

An Interim Board has been appointed to facilitate a process to establish an inaugural board of 5 Council appointed and 5 industry /skilled directors and an independent Executive Chairman.

The new organisation will have an initial annual budget of over $1Million for destination marketing, industry development, management and advocacy. Additionally, the Interim Board is currently overseeing the implementation of marketing and industry and product development projects valued at $600k funded by Tourism Victoria from previously frozen funds allocated to the region.

See you in Our Backyard,
