Our Backyard – Apollo Bay

The Australia and New Zealand Internet Awards (ANZIAs) are a collaboration between auDA and InternetNZ. The awards are an annual event celebrating the achievements of organisations, businesses and individuals that have made significant contributions to the development and use of the Internet in Australia and New Zealand.

The Apollo Bay Community Website is a comprehensive, multi-faceted, multi-media site about Apollo Bay; a coastal township on the southwest coast of Victoria in the middle of the world renowned Great Ocean Road.

The website provides comprehensive details about all facets of the Apollo Bay community. It is used to get up-to-date information on events, to access community services, details of local businesses and view photos of recent events.

Similarly, but most important, the website provides a fantastic focal point for the many hundreds of thousands of visitors who travel or intend to travel the iconic Great Ocean Road.

Over the past 12 months the website has developed working links with local media; i.e. Apollo Bay News Sheet; Otway Community News Facebook page; Apollo Bay Community Radio. Additionally, non-resident property owners use it to keep in touch with ‘their’ community, to find out what has been happening and what are the upcoming events in their ‘home away from home’ life.

Congratulations to Pip Cumming and Gary McPike
