EXPRESSION OF INTEREST

TO HOST AN EVENT ON THE CLOSED GREAT OCEAN ROAD (2022-2024)

The Great Ocean Road is one of Australia's main touring routes, featuring a world-famous coastal drive. Its brand is recognized internationally with some two million people travelling along the iconic stretch each year to experience the unique journey and unforgettable views.

Given the Great Ocean Road's status, any event organizer seeking to secure a road closure to stage an event must demonstrate exceptional event management capabilities. Event organisers are required to deliver the host region significant economic, social and environmental benefits and to leave an appropriate Legacy. 

Expressions of Interest are currently being sought to deliver an event of State, national or International significance on the closed Great Ocean Road. Successful applicants will be granted in-principle support for a three year period (2022-2024) subject to the Shire's usual annual review. 

 Expressions of Interest will close Friday 9 October 2020 at 4pm. 

 Please find the link below to the Surf Coast Shire website for the on-line application via Smarty Grants.

A steering committee consisting of Regional Roads Victoria, Victoria Police, Surf Coast Shire and Colac Otway Shire will assess applications and advise successful applicants with a final decision on 30 October, 2020.
