Investment Profile

The Grampians region (map) is a large area of Western Victoria that stretches from the western outskirts of Melbourne along the Western Highway corridor to the South Australian boarder. Cities and towns along this corridor are experiencing strong population growth and the highway itself is experiencing increased freight volumes both of which are providing a fertile environment for many exciting investment opportunities.

Investors in the region will find excellent education, training facilities, broad band connectivity and a strong and reliable labour market. Government investments in water infrastructure such as the Wimmera Mallee Pipeline provide significant competitive advantage for the region and benefits for business.

Further Government investment in projects such as the Grampians Peaks Trail, Sovereign Hill and the Eureka Sports and Entertainment complex are set to significantly boost visitation to the region thus improving the opportunities to invest in an already vibrant tourism sector.

The establishment of the Ballarat West Employment Zone, a 320Ha industrial estate and the Wimmera Intermodal Freight Terminal both with excellent freeway, air, rail and port access are improving the freight handling efficiencies and providing large high quality land parcels to regional investors.

The Grampians region proudly offers a family-friendly lifestyle, providing numerous leisure activities, wineries, world-class restaurants and attractive living conditions with high quality affordable housing.
