The Geelong Ring Road Employment Precinct is an ideal location for any business seeking to establish, expand or relocate their operations. Key attributes of the precinct include:

Geelong has a well established reputation for meeting the needs of business and industry. More than 16,000 business enterprises operate locally supported by a workforce of 140,000.
Geelong plays an important role in the long term development of Victoria. The city is earmarked for continued expansion as Melbourne reaches the limits of its growth. Developer interest in the Geelong region is at an all time high.
The GREP offers seamless connections to markets across Victoria, Australia and around the world. The GREP is accessible by all modes of transport: road, rail, sea and air. Such connectivity is not often found outside capital cities.
The precinct includes flexibility of lot sizes to accommodate a range of development options. More than 500 hectares of land are available, with 327 hectares on offer for greenfield development. Land allotments vary from 2,000 square metres to five hectare lots. Larger parcels are available by negotiation.
Land within the GREP is competitively priced compared to equivalent land parcels in metropolitan Melbourne. A range of tenure options including ownership or leasing is available from both the Council and private developers.
Land within GREP is level which avoids unnecessary constructions costs. Zoning buffers protect industrial land from residential encroachment.
The unique offering of greenfield industrial land is rarely available so close to a capital city.
Geelong’s lifestyle is hard to beat. Quality housing, wide-ranging recreational choices, a strong economy, a cosmopolitan, vibrant community and comprehensive health-care services are just part of the picture.
As one of Australia’s largest urban centres, with more than 225,000 residents, Geelong provides the perfect environment to balance work and home-life.
Only an hour from Melbourne, Geelong offers a range of lifestyle choices – inner city, suburban, waterfront, coastal and rural – with greater value for money than equivalent properties in Melbourne. These combine with a comprehensive range of job opportunities and infrastructure to get your business moving.
Geelong has a wide choice of recreational activities. The region’s compact nature makes activities such as golf, sailing, surfing and windsurfing possible before and after work, not just at weekends.
