Coastcare Victoria announcement: Summer By The Sea 2023 has arrived!

The Summer By The Sea program for 2023 is now live! This year’s theme is ‘Coastal Connections’, focusing on the relationship between our coastal environment and the passionate people who care for these beautiful places.

Summer by the Sea is an annual program delivered by Coastcare Victoria with the support of providers including government agencies, local experts, and volunteer groups. The program involves a range of in-person and online events, allowing everyone to connect with the coast, wherever they are across the state.

Summer By The Sea will be running between 4 January and 5 February 2023, aligning with the school holiday period. The 2023 program is designed to be inclusive of all ages, with some highlights being:

  • Guided coastal walks with educational and subject matter experts along the coast from Narrawong to Walkerville
  • Guided rockpool tours and dinosaur discoveries
  • Accessible experiences including disabled snorkelling, and educational beach access walks
  • Live online events covering topics such as great white shark ecology, places to go snorkelling this summer, a panel on ways to help the coast, and more.
  • Videos covering a whole host of topics from marine mammal diversity research to Bass Coast mangroves

All in-person and online events are free, but bookings are essential. For more information and a full program of activities, visit the What’s On page and follow the Eventbrite prompts!
