Why should my business partner with GORRT?

Our organisation is responsible for keeping our region top of mind in consideration for travel. We have built a strong brand around the Great Ocean Road and work to deliver on our strategy to influence visitor behaviour to promote longer stays, seasonal and mid-week dispersal and encourage visitors to explore more of the region – all contributing to growing the value of the visitor economy.


Our core digital channels are our 15 websites, including our regional website which generates the high volume of traffic for the region, and our destination websites focusing on deeper destination content and local experiences. This is supported by search engine optimisation and a marketing program ensuring we are optimised on relevant search engine result pages. This ongoing program helps us build awareness, inspiration and capture more users.


Our two key social media platforms Facebook and Instagram @visitgreatoceanroad have grown with an engaged audience and growing in reach. We continually generate new content in a variety of styles and formats, working with audience trends to grow and engage with potential visitors on social media. We regularly promote ads to help grow our audience and engagement, targeting specific customer profiles according to content.  We also actively promote content on YouTube and TikTok, and have a range of other digital products designed to target a range of potential visitors and lead them to our websites, where tourism businesses are featured.

All of the above contributes to what we refer to as our ‘Always On’ approach. We also coordinate tactical strategic marketing campaigns to market the Great Ocean Road region. Traditionally each year we run an intrastate off-peak marketing campaign, however sector campaigns and longer running promotional activities targeting different audiences (for example our interstate activities) are ongoing. There is normally at least one campaign in market at all times. These campaigns increase the exposure of our region to potential visitors with the aim to influence their consideration for travel to our region above other

I have had a listing in the past via ATDW.  Do I need to do anything?


Don’t panic. If you have a current ATDW listing, the content form the portal will be published on our websites relevant to your location already.  If you have had an ATDW listing that has expired, we’ll be in touch with instructions to continue maintaining your listing directly with us at no cost.
