Tourism Geelong and The Bellarine – CORPORATE WEBSITE

Cafes & Restaurants

Grow Your Cafe or Restaurant

Eating and drinking is a HUGE part of travelling. The rise of the gastro-tourist has put a focus on hospitality and in some cases is actually the key factor driving visitors to the region – a destination restaurant, a champion winery or a meal with a view.

54% of the 1.2 million Australian visitors to Geelong and The Bellarine in 2015 cited ‘eating out’ as a key activity of their trip. No one wants to wash dishes when they’re on holidays!

Joining team tourism will expose your café or restaurant to the huge potential of the growing visitor market. Whether you offer simple meals in a key location, provide a unique and indulgent dining experience or just want to tap in to the visitor economy to put more bums on seats, there are ways to put your brand in front of this market.

Get found by more visitors

Our content marketing strategy has a focus on eating out. We have blog posts about local produce absolutely showing off on local menus. We have pictorials showing the best food porn from across the region. And we’ll share stories with the family market about the best places to take their mini-people to eat and satisfy the whole family.

There are tactical ways to reach the visitor market through our channels too. If you have special events they can be featured on the What’s On section of our website, the second highest visited page on the entire site. You’ll be listed in local directories of where to eat and drink in specific destinations.

You’ll also be profiled on the regional visitor website with a listing that’s integrated into state and national systems. Check out how member businesses look:
