We understand the challenges of doing business in Victor Harbor. We all operate in a business environment, not experienced in any other comparable regional centre of South Australia.

Yet with all these challenges, we have some fantastic robust long term and emerging businesses. These businesses highlight the importance of recognising a healthy regional community has at its core – a healthy, vibrant, and sustainable business community.
In 2019, on your behalf, we are delighted to advise having completed a number of projects; which you will find listed in the attached report – to view, click on the “Download” button above.
