What we do

Better events

No business operates in isolation from its community. The more we can empower and support community groups, businesses, and events, the better it is for our town.

Better advocacy

By working together with other groups like the Victorian Regional Chambers of Commerce, G21, Business Victoria, the Colac Otway Shire, State and Federal members and many government departments, the members of the Apollo Bay Chamber have solidified a strong advocacy voice for our community.

Better partnerships

When passionate individuals and businesses present an idea or challenge, the Apollo Bay Chamber will facilitate the most productive partnerships to help bring the vision to life. Our extensive network and strong relationships enable us to achieve these outcomes.

Better environment

A better environment is measured in more than clean air and unpolluted beaches. Our Chamber is dedicated to work together for a richer social and cultural environment, with sustainability at the core for all the endeavours we support.

Better promotion

We maintain strong relationships with local and state media, tourism bodies, and the local community. Our involvement in local events supports destination marketing priorities, so if you have an experience, product, or service needing promotion, the Chamber is there to communicate your needs, provide inventive ideas and  wholehearted assistance.

Better value for Members

From as little as $20, Membership really is a no-brainer for those who need to be heard or need representation from a well-established, resilient team. It’s also a practical and effective way to contribute to the improvement of a township your business proudly calls home.

Better community

No business operates in isolation from its community. The more we can empower and support community groups, businesses, and events, the better it is for our town.


Apollo Bay has a diverse and thriving business community. Tourism, hospitality and Accommodation. Building and Trades. Book-keeping and Professional Services. Film-making and Creative Industries. Fishing and farming. Health. Education.
