Now that summer has arrived, many of us enjoy travelling around the Surf Coast, Geelong and Great Ocean Road to experience the beaches and beautiful sunshine. On our journey we usually need a stopover at the local supermarkets to gather some supplies. In Geelong and the Surf Coast we have a wide range of supermarkets to choose from, some are larger chains such as Woolworths and Coles, but in smaller beachside towns Independent Supermarkets such as IGA and Foodworks also benefit from our support.
Here’s a list of some of the supermarkets along the Great Ocean Road to help with your journey;
