Corangamite CMA is committed to healthy catchments and waterways. Established in 1997 to ensure the protection and sustainable development of land, vegetation and water resources within a boundary stretching from Geelong to Ballarat and along the coast to Peterborough.





Corangamite CMA will host its third Research and Development Forum for natural
resource managers, landholders and community members.The event will focus on the latest research in natural resource management in the Victorian Volcanic Plains bioregion. More details here.

Make money out of your coastal vegetation!

Does your property extend onto coastal dunes, coastal inlet, estuary, or wetland? Does it
contain typical coastal vegetation or marshy vegetation known as saltmarsh? If your answer is yes you may be eligible to receive payments to help protect these important areas.


Private landholders, local councils, and Crown land managers who agree to undertake
management actions of benefit to coastal native vegetation and habitat on sites (>1ha) along the Corangamite coastline, may be eligible to receive cash incentive payments through CoastalTender Round 3.

The project will cover the entire coastline for the Corangamite region, as well as areas surrounding the Port Phillip Bay and Bellarine Peninsula Ramsar sites which fall within the Corangamite region.

This $1 million initiative, funded by the Australian Government, aims to conserve Victoria’s coastal vegetation and the native wildlife dependent upon it, including the endangered
Orange-bellied Parrot and coastal saltmarsh vegetation community. Full details
