Delivering in partnership with local Surf Coast business trader groups

Great Cafe Service

Surf Coast 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 that more than 80% of local businesses 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 business or expert.


Surf Coast Localised changes that!
