2013 Campolina-Fulton Hogan Tour of the Great South Coast | 14 Aug - 18 Aug
The inagural Tour of the Great South Coast was first held in 2012 and was an enormous success. Conducted in Victoria's rugged and spectacular south-west region, the 5-day tour attracted more than 150 competitors from all Australian states & territories, New Caledonia and New Zealand.
The 578km race was won by the consistent West Australian, Anthony Giacoppo, of the Genesys Wealth Advisors team.
The tour received excellent backing from the municipalities of Glenelg, Moyne and Corangamite, plus Tourism Victoria and a wide range of regional sponsors. Although conducted in periodic inclement weather, riders and team managers heaped praise on the course which took in Portland, Nelson, Heywood, Casterton, Port Fairy, Koroit, Peterborough & Camperdown.
The 94.2km stage from Heywood to Casterton, although conducted in driving rain, was lauded as one of the highlights of the 2012 Subaru National Road Series. Caribou is planning to expand the course in 2013, to include more manicupalities.

About the Region
The south-west region of Victoria boasts kilometres of National Park and the magnificent Great Ocean Road, home to the world-famous Twelve Apostles - a natural rock formation created by the erosion of the limestone cliffs by the Southern Ocean.
The lush hinterland has fertile grasslands, internationally recognised wetlands, volcanic cones and rolling hills, and is not only attractive, but also forms the basis of an important agricultural industry.
