Why Grow Your Business in Geelong

With a population of over 244,000 people, the City of Greater Geelong is Victoria’s largest regional city.

Located only 75 kilometres from the Melbourne CBD, the municipality covers 1,245 sq.kms., comprising urban, country and coastal areas.

Geelong is home to a range of businesses in the top 500 private Australian companies, including GMHBACotton OnMC HerdSouthern Star and Rex Gorell.

More recently, government owned organisations such as the TACWorksafeNDIS and the Australian Bureau of Statistics have shown their confidence in Geelong by relocating their Head Offices to the Geelong CBD.

Most industry sectors are well-represented in both employment and output terms in the region. Many major businesses have recently increased their presence in Geelong including Epworth Healthcare, Bunge, Coles, Australian Unity, Woolworths, Accensi and Energy Australia.

Looking ahead, there is more than $2 billion worth of major construction and redevelopment underway or ready to start, according to the City of Greater Geelong.

With AirAsia finally set to fly internationally into Avalon Airport from later this year, the time is now right to be building ties with the Southeast Asian cities serviced by AirAsia.

Besides the obvious direct opportunities for Geelong businesses, such as hotels, restaurants, shops and leisure operators, there are myriad other ways to maximise the new connection.

It comes as the city’s population is set to swell by 150,000 over the next 20 years, underpinned by strong retail and tourism sectors.
