Building a thriving local economy

We want Bayside to be recognised for its thriving shopping and business precincts and as a prominent sporting and tourist destination. Read about our highlights from 2016/17.

Bayside Business Network

We continued our support of the highly regarded Bayside Business Network. Aimed at establishing professional connections and promoting excellence in business, innovation and entrepreneurship. The network hosted 30 breakfasts and luncheons and attracted over 3,000 attendees due to the calibre of guest speakers and the quality of networking opportunities.

Our popular Bayside Instagram Competition enjoyed its second successful year. Through the hashtag #ourbayside, it aimed to connect with tourists, encourage them to visit Bayside, and shopin the local economy. The 2017 competition attracted 619 entries and reached over 1 million people.

Christmas in Bayside

An array of attractive festive decorations were installed in key precincts across the municipality to celebrate Christmas 2016. Activities including the Shops on Show window competition and a range of celebratory events were also conducted. Local Rotary and Lions clubs provided valuable assistance at decoration launches, community activities and the Christmas breakfast on Bay Street.
