Holding an event
The Corangamite CMA can assist with advice on any permits or requirements needed by the authority to hold your event along the Barwon River through Geelong.
The Event Fact Sheet provides information to assist you in planning your event. To kick start the process event organisers must complete an Events Application Form. The information provided in the application is then circulated to relevant agencies and Corangamite CMA departments for feedback. An email listing any requirements and/or permit needs will then be sent to the event organiser.
If further information is needed, you will be notified within 10 working days of the Corangamite CMA receiving the event inquiry.
For events outside the CCMA-managed land, contact the City of Greater Geelong.
