Great South Coast Regional Partnership

Great South Coast Regional Partnerships Logo The Great South Coast Regional Partnership was established in 2016 and is one of 9 partnerships across the state, established by the Victorian Government in recognition that local communities are in the best position to understand the challenges and opportunities faced by their region.

The Great South Coast region of south-west Victoria extends from the iconic Shipwreck Coast to the South Australian border.

The region is also home to internationally recognised areas of indigenous significance, including UNESCO World Heritage listed Budj Bim Cultural Landscape, just outside Warrnambool.

The region is also home to one of Australia’s premier deep-water ports at Portland.
