Situated just 150 kilometres south-west of Melbourne, Colac Otway is one of the most picturesque Victorian municipalities, featuring lush farming plains, rugged coastline, the majestic Otway Ranges and the world famous Great Ocean Road.

Away from the hassles of city life, the Shire has successful manufacturing, infrastructure, professional and investment strengths, as well as diverse and desirable lifestyles, stretching from the coastal living of Apollo Bay to the large regional centre of Colac.

Our employees appreciate the open spaces, easy parking, recreational facilities and less expensive housing. Families can choose from kindergartens, childcare facilities and primary and secondary schools.
