Swimming Zones - Have Your Say

  Published December 12th, 2016

Parks Victoria is inviting the public to comment on proposed revisions to existing and planned boating and swimming zones in Port Phillip and Western Port as part of an ongoing review to improve boating and swimming zones and public safety on the water.

“It’s important that boating and swimming zones are a good reflection of the current and future needs of water-based activities in the area and that they maximise safety on the water,” said Parks Victoria Acting Senior Manager for Local Ports and Waterways, Cathy Jenkins.

“The focus of our current review aims to refine the zones in order to provide a safer environment through better separation of boating and swimming activities in high density bathing areas, and to ensure sport and recreational can activities operate legally and safely.”

“Parks Victoria is very committed to ensuring our bays continue to handle the increasing numbers of visitors and the diverse range of recreational water activities,”

In 2009 Parks Victoria completed a comprehensive two-year review of all boating and swimming zones across Port Phillip and Western Port in partnership with Maritime Safety Victoria. The review involved extensive community consultation which included beach users, recreational boat operators, local government, business and boat operators and life-saving clubs.

Swimming and boating zones are clearly marked with aids to navigation (piles or buoys) installed in the water and advisory signage on the shore.

An overview of proposed adjustments, implementation history, rules and supporting maps are available at:

Feedback can be provided by:
Completing a survey via the Parks Victoria website
Writing to: Boating Zone Review, Parks Victoria, 10/535 Bourke St, Melbourne, VIC 3000.

Opportunity to provide feedback on the proposed boating and swimming zone changes is open until Friday 16 December 2016.
