The localities of Anglesea, Apollo Bay, Barwon Heads, Colac, Inverleigh, Linton, Lorne, Torquay and Winchelsea and parts of the Greater City of Geelong (Belmont, Grovedale, Highton, Ocean Grove, Port Arlington) are located in this division. The division of Corangamite is bordered by the division of Wannon to the west, the division of Ballarat to the north and the division of Corio to the east.
Origin Corangamite was named after Lake Corangamite. The name of the lake originated from the Aboriginal word for 'bitter' (describing the salt content of the lake). Corangamite was first proclaimed in 1900. The first election was held for the Division in 1901.
