Community Coastal Hazards Survey 

 

The Port Fairy Coastal Group – Coastal Hazard Community Exhibition highlighted future threats to Port Fairy’s coast.

 

Locals and visitors were then surveyed on how they use and value the coast and which areas should be protected into the future.

 

This information will help guide local and state governments in tackling the challenges of sea level rise and erosion. 

 

The Coastal Hazard Community Exhibition was been funded by the Department of Environment and Primary Industries and supported by Moyne Shire.
