The Koroit Business and Tourism Association was formed in 2002 as a result of Moyne Unlimited, a joint initiative of the Victorian Government’s StreetLife program and the Moyne Shire Council.
Since its inception the group has become an incorporated body and has been successful in a number of funding applications for the town.
The association`s members enjoy the many benefits that come with being part of a fully incorporated and recognised body, including a strong and united voice to local and state government.
Membership is $60 per business per annum ($20 pa for Community Organisations) and meetings are held on the fourth Monday of the month at 7.30pm at the Koroit Country Bakehouse , Commercial Rd. These meetings are regularly attended by Councillors and other council representatives and are a great opportunity to interact with other traders and community representatives and have a say in what`s happening in your town.
