Maritime Planning

As the Local Port Manager for Port Phillip and Western Port and Port Campbell, Parks Victoria is responsible to ensure that the Port operates in a safe, efficient and functional way. This often includes how the water and land work together to achieve a cohesive environment.

Management Plans and other strategic documents articulate the vision, goals, outcomes, measures and long-term strategies for Parks Victoria managed assets and land. Parks Victoria regularly undertakes planning exercises for many of the sites it manages across the Bays and Waterways region.
