East Gippsland is renowned for its wonderful environment including pristine lakes and rivers, snow capped mountains and far-reaching coastal wilderness. These outstanding natural assets are a drawcard not only to over almost 1.1 million visitors annually, but to an increasing influx of new residents seeking the ‘good life’.
An extensive infrastructure grid exists across the region which spans 22,000 square kilometres in eastern Victoria. We are ideally situated between Australia’s two major commercial hubs and ports in Melbourne and Sydney. And with a world class road network offering easy access to both, as well as to the Nations’ capital Canberra, freighting by road is easy and efficient.
All main utilities are available including power and gas (LPG supply extensive, natural gas supply limited), together with high quality telecommunications. Mobile phone coverage and broadband is accessible in most of the region.
East Gippsland offers a quality lifestyle and the workforce in the region is stable and plentiful. Affordable housing and good community facilities and support all contribute to a very desirable quality of life.
There are many other advantages making East Gippsland the right place to be your business base – the strength and stability of existing businesses will attest to this. And coupled with our natural environment, great infrastructure and community support programs our region can provide you with the opportunity to seize and realise your true business potential.
