Managing 37km from Torquay to Lorne

Coastal Reserves

The Great Ocean Road Coast Committee manages foreshore reserves in Aireys Inlet, Anglesea, Lorne and Torquay.

All money made through our commercial operations is reinvested back into our caravan parks, coast and community.

Our outdoor rangers undertake a range of works such as beach clean ups and facility maintenance on a regular basis to ensure the Great Ocean Road coastline remains in top condition.

Our outdoor rangers maintain over 88 access points, 16 BBQs, 25 toilet blocks and more along the coast.

The coastal reserves team (L-R): Nathan, John F, John L, Sue, Nick, Trent, Daryl, Phil, Kim, Rod and Caleb.

The team conduct a range of work to keep the foreshore in top condition. These works includes:

  • Asset and facility building, repairs and maintenance (e.g. beach access points, tracks, amenities and signage)
  • Coastal protection works (e.g. beach clean ups, revegetation work, mowing and weed control)
  • Arbour works (e.g. tree risk mitigation)
  • Waste management and collection
  • Community event support (e.g. Lorne Pier to Pub, Anaconda Adventure Race, ANZAC Day Services).

Each year, we invest a significant portion of revenue into managing the coastline to meet visitor demands and expectations.

Here are are just a few examples:

  • Barbecues
  • Beach access infrastructure
  • Bridges
  • Cafes
  • Car parks
  • Fences
  • Garbage bins
  • Memorials
  • Outdoor showers
  • Pathways
  • Picnic tables and shelters
  • Playgrounds
  • Public lighting
  • Seating
  • Signage
