Our Community


The Great Ocean Road is one of the world’s most loved coastal drives.


Extending 243 kilometres from Torquay to Warrnambool in Victoria’s rural south west, the route’s spectacular scenery is magnified by a myriad of iconic tourist attractions including: the Twelve Apostles, the Otway Fly, Apollo Bay Bowl Harbour, Glow Worm caves, Great Otway National Park, numerous spectacular waterfalls, forest walks, Bells Beach and a selection of Australia’s best beaches.


Parallel to these natural assets is a unique heart and soul – a sense of place and belonging that entices so many to call this region home. These tight-knit communities are rightly parochial and protective of their own special corner of this great region.


At Great Ocean Road Real Estate, we love being part of it all and encourage each of our team members to embrace their communities, to proactively connect with the people who choose to live where they live.


As an organisation, we support those same community values via ongoing contributions to multiple organisations and individuals in “Our Backyard” including:
