Planning for the future of East Beach

Published on 18 December 2018


Moyne Shire Council is seeking feedback on a masterplan for the East Beach foreshore on Beach Street Port Fairy, near the Surf Lifesaving Club.

The masterplan will guide the renewal of the “jewel in the crown” of Port Fairy – a beach that’s considered one of the highlights of the south-west Victorian coastline.

Moyne Shire Mayor Mick Wolfe is encouraging people to share their views on the plan online or at a community pop-up presentation.

“Whether you walk your dog on the beach, take a morning dip, or just sit in your car to take in the ocean views, we want to hear what you think of our plan.

“East Beach is a place for everyone, and we have an opportunity to create an area that is accessible to all.

“Through the plan, we hope to create a guiding vision towards the establishment of an innovative and connected precinct with outdoor spaces for all uses.”

The community is invited to view the masterplan, and complete a short survey at They are also invited to contribute ideas at a pop-up presentation on:

  • Monday 14 January 2019 from 2.30pm – 4.30pm  
  • Monday 14 January 2019 from 5.30pm – 7.30pm
  • Tuesday 15 January 2019 from 9am11am

Moyne Shire wants to hear from residents and visitors. In short, anybody who feels strongly about the future of this beautiful stretch of beach.

These sessions will be held at the new Education Centre at the Port Fairy Surf Lifesaving Club, Hughes Avenue, Port Fairy
