Have you Localised your business yet?

Published on 01 March 2019


In business, as in life, it is so often true that we just don’t know what we don’t know.

For instance, did you know that in August 2018, Surf Coast Shire Council partnered with Localised to bring you SurfCoast.Localised? (You know, it took us ages to come up with that name!)

SurfCoast.Localised is the local-first business-to-business network for the Surf Coast. It allows local businesses to promote themselves, connect with other local businesses and discover all the latest local business events and projects on offer. And it’s FREE!

The only catch? Your business has to be located within the G21 Region (Surf Coast, Colac Otway and Golden Plains Shires as well as City of Greater Geelong and Borough of Queenscliffe).

Since the launch of SurfCoast.Localised, over 430 Surf Coast business owners have already created a profile, joining a network of over 1400 businesses across the G21 region. And it keeps on growing.

Whether you're looking to promote, connect, or discover ways to grow your business, if you do business in the Surf Coast, you need to get Localised.
