Greater opportunities

Inspired by its rich industrial heritage, Geelong is a thriving modern economy, with diverse employment opportunities.

Our top growing sectors are health, education, retail, construction, manufacturing and tourism and we are expanding our knowledge-based and innovation industries, like professional services, advanced materials manufacturing, research, cleantech, agribusiness and across creative and cultural sectors.

While 85 per cent of Greater Geelong’s workforce lives in the region, it’s only one hour door-to-door to Melbourne. This year a project is underway to cut train travel times by 15 minutes.

Big investments are happening across the city and a new active transport network of shared trails and cycling lanes is driving a sustainable and healthy commuting future.

Work-life on country
