Welcome to new residents

Enjoy your move to Corangamite

Where abundant lifestyle options are yours to experience and explore.

Strong and friendly communities amongst charming historic towns provide a sense of place in wide open spaces.

Coastal flavours aplenty along the Great Ocean Road, home of the iconic 12 Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge. Surfing, snorkeling and scuba diving are a must when visiting the striking beaches in Port Campbell and Princetown. Delicious gourmet treats of cheese, malt whiskey, handcrafted wine, snails, fine ice-cream, chocolate and strawberries are sure to delight on the 12 Apostles Gourmet Trail.

Inland from the 12 Apostles Coast you will find Australia's largest Volcanic Plain.  The remnants of this ancient volcanic field can be seen in the form of ancient Volcanoes and Lakes scattered in the landscape.

Views from Mt Leura (Camperdown), Mt Noorat (Terang) or Mt Elephant (Derrinallum) on a still winter’s morning reveal a tapestry of green pasture and deep crystal pools. 

Water sports abound, with many of lakes being havens for boating, waterskiing, swimming and fishing.

Anglers and lovers of scenery will appreciate Lake Purrumbete or Lake Ellingamite. Bird and wildlife lovers explore Lake Bookaar and Ralph Illidge Sanctuary. Antique collectors will love the hard to find relics in the vintage shops in our towns. There is a little something for everyone.
