Move to country Victoria and be transported

There’s a misconception that when you move to country Victoria your transport options disappear. Nothing’s further from the truth. Colac is located on the Princes Highway, just two hours from Melbourne and one hour from Geelong. Construction is underway on the duplication of the Princes Highway, which will connect to the Geelong Ring Road and provide a safe, smooth connection to family and friends in the city as well as commerce, sporting events and entertainment.

Jobs in regional Victoria need workers and Colac’s transport options open up opportunities at every turn, particularly taking into account business relocation incentives in Victoria.

If you don’t like driving, there’s a V/Line station in Colac, as well as the nearby township of Birregurra. Our Colac city bus service is great for getting around town.

Colac is the hub of the Western District, linking to Ballarat one hour to the north, Geelong one hour to the east and Warrnambool one hour to the west.

And then there’s the great south, which includes the world-renowned Twelve Apostles and Great Ocean Road,┬ájust an hour’s drive away, through some of the most spectacular countryside in the world. Move to the country and you’ll be transported!
