Business Help Hub

MidCoast businesses are tackling the challenge of COVID-19 restrictions head-on and we're here to help wherever we possibly can.

Our economic development and tourism teams can work closely with you to provide support and information. We're not experts, but we can help refer you to government or other agencies for advice and assistance you may need right now:

  • information and advice - a friendly voice and ear at the end of the phone with a local perspective
  • referral point for Government support
  • we're undertaking daily research into health orders, restrictions and government support packages to ensure current information is available and distributed to key business networks 

Check out the links below for more information, or call our Business Liaison Service.

To access the Business Liaison Service, call 7955 7777 or email


We've launched a brand new website that encourages locals to Shop MidCoast - whether online or in person, through your door. It's right here: Shop MidCoast

If you're continuing to operate during the COVID-19 restrictions, please register to be listed on the business directory there. It's supporting the television advertising campaign and is the focus for the region to keep locals shopping local.
