Treasuring the Central Coastal Region - a healthy and sustainable coast for current and future generations.
The Central Coast Board
The Board is one of three regional coastal planning advisory bodies appointed by the Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water. The central coastal region stretches from Breamlea to Inverloch, covering nearly 1,000 kilometres of coastline. It includes the metropolis of Melbourne and City of Greater Geelong, catchment areas, the two large bays of Port Phillip and Western Port and the region’s open coastline and islands. Read more >
The Regional Coastal Boards work closely with the Victorian Coastal Council, the statewide peak organisation responsible for developing the Victorian Coastal Strategy every five years. Read more >

News and Events
‘Connecting Coastal Champions’ was successfully hosted on Thursday 23 November 2017 at Novotel Melbourne St Kilda.
The forum included presentations on coastal and marine management issues and concluded with a hypothetical panel discussion set in 2027, facilitated by Rob Gel. The forum was successful in stimulating thinking about future coastal management and providing leading examples of current practices. A reflection on the issues arising at the Forum will be available in early 2018 and the CCB is working towards securing a coastal forum as an annual event.
A summary of the forum can be viewed here: Statement Release
