Colac Otway Localised is free for local businesses, and will help you:

  • Advertise your goods and services to the local business community
  • Engage with other businesses to get local quotes
  • Discover networking and professional development events across our region

Did you know, in 2017 local buyers purchased $743.5 million in goods and services from suppliers outside our Colac Otway Shire.


And more than 80% of local business want to support other local businesses - but less than half of them actually do?


And the number one reason why they don’t? It is hard to find a local.


Localised changes that!
