Our Partnership

The Great South Coast Regional Partnership is one of nine such Partnerships across the state, established by the Victorian Government, recognising that local communities are in the best position to understand the challenges and opportunities faced by their region.

Over the past two years, our Partnership has heard from thousands of people living and working in Great South Coast, including through three Regional Assemblies.

We've taken your voice to the heart of the Victorian Government, and we look forward to hearing from you going forward.

2018 Regional Assembly

Our 2018 Regional Assembly was held on Wednesday 13 June in Hamilton.

It was an opportunity to hear what the Partnership has achieved to date, and for participants to add their thoughts on our top priorities — the economy, health and community, education, transport, and culture and environment.

It was great to see so many people there and to hear the depth of conversation.


We still want to hear from you.

The 2018 Assembly may be over but we still want to hear your views on our top priorities and how we can continue to shape our region.
