As you would expect, the Victorian Government has offices across the State, and even some interstate and overseas.
The central business district (CBD) of Melbourne is home to head offices for all our Victorian Public Service (VPS) departments and most of our key agencies.
Government offices, often with several different agencies under one roof, are also located in key regional centres including Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo and Traralgon.
On this site, the State is divided into regions following local government areas (with the larger towns and cities noted in brackets). Check out our Victoria map to locate job opportunities, and to help you decide where you want to live and work.

Public sector entities, including research stations, prisons, correctional services, water authorities and business enterprises, are located across metropolitan Melbourne suburbs or in provincial cities, towns or rural parts of the State.
In regional centres you will find that education, health and community services are provided through a wide regional network that includes public hospitals, health centres, correctional services, and educational facilities and schools.
