It's Our Backyard - get involved!

It’s our backyard. Let’s show it some love.

You can follow the campaign on Facebook, Instagram and via the hashtag #itsourbackyardgeelong.

Use the hashtag to share how you’re supporting local or to let the community know more about your business.

We’ve also created a collection of social media tiles and resources for the community and business owners to share online. Let’s help Geelong get through this by thinking local first.  

Here are some ways to support local!

Free ideas:
Share and like a post, repost, tag a friend, say something nice, post a pic, write a review, sign up to an EDM, give a shout out (your opinion counts), and most importantly, refrain from anything negative!

Dollar driven ideas:
Shop locally and choose local products and services, buy a gift voucher, book for use later, try something new, eat take out, donate to those in need.

Eat take-out and try new dine-at-home options, choose local wine, grab a cook at home pack, enjoy a virtual wine tasting or cocktail making class.
