What is Save Bastion Point?
A large number of organisations and individuals comprising the Save Bastion Point Campaign formed a coalition in 2004 to fight the East Gippsland Shire Council’s proposal for a large scale breakwater and boat ramp development (known as Option 3b) at Bastion Point, Mallacoota. The Campaign specifically works together to protect the many values of Bastion Point, to promote safe and sustainable use of the area and to oppose inappropriate development on the Bastion Point headland. See our Campaign Fact Sheet or view our 3 minute Youtube slideshow.

General News and Events
On 23 January 2013 the Minister for the Environment and Climate Change, Ryan Smith, gave approval under the Coastal Management Act for East Gippsland Shire Council to construct the Option 3b breakwater and beach road. We will continue to oppose this uneconomic and environmentally destructive project. This decision by the Minister shows that no piece of Victoria’s coastline or beach is safe from poorly planned and destructive developments. See Further information in our News pages, watch We’re not gonna take it! about this decision, and see the Minister’s reasons for granting consent here.
