Bellarine Bayside, together with Bellarine Landcare, supported St Leonards Primary School Grade 4 class in the establishment of a starfish-shaped indigenous garden. The garden has been created around their commemorative 1975 centenary sundial and will provide a diverse habitat to support native bees and butterflies.
On Saturday 18 June, Bellarine Bayside supported The Dive Victoria Group and Bellarine Catchment Network to clean up litter at St Leonards Pier. While a group of dedicated divers braved the cold water to collect litter in and around the pier, a group of community members collected litter along the foreshore and in the car park.
Every winter, as part of our on-going conservation effort, Bellarine Bayside hosts three winter community planting days, one in each of our three local communities. Bellarine Bayside relies on your help to ensure the success of our winter planting program and we encourage you to actively participate in these days.
Bellarine Bayside is excited to announce that as part of a multi-stakeholder partnership we have successfully obtained funding from the Federal Government in round four of the Green Army programme.

As part of the rollout of the new Boating Zones for the Northern Bellarine the following proposed works will be in operation, subject to the review of weather conditions.
