Picturesque Hastings, on Western Port Bay, is the commercial hub of the eastern side of Mornington Peninsula. High St is a bustling shopping strip with major outlets (Kmart, Coles and Safeway), along with a variety of specialty stores, cafés, banks and professional services. We’ve got everything in Hastings, why go anywhere else?
You can see what we have to offer through our business directory: all businesses in the central commercial zone have a listing with their address and contact details.
To encourage the growth and prosperity of individual Hastings businesses, the chamber offers:
• Marketing opportunities
• Access to promotional events

At our monthly business breakfast meetings, we invite business experts, well-known personalities and local businesses to present ideas, suggestions and encouragement to our members.
