Our Coast

From Barwon Heads and Ocean Grove, to Point Lonsdale, Queenscliff along the bay to Geelong and beyond, our coastlines really are something special.

Here, and right around the world, coastal communities are addressing the impacts of changing weather patterns and rising sea levels.

You can be part of the Our Coast project, helping to decide how your community should prepare for changes in our region’s coastal zones.

The Our Coast project is a partnership with community, all levels of government and coastal management agencies to successfully respond to the challenges of climate change.

Work so far on this project includes mapping our coastal region. Read the full report here or view the report summary

A comprehensive risk assessment has been conducted for vulnerable areas and a range of information regarding adaptation options is available in the Resources section.

A series of community open house events have been held and these are being followed up with a range of activities that community members can be involved in.  Details are available on the individual township pages and on the Get Involved page
