Photo Exhibition a Huge Success

An exhibition and auction of Norm Neilson’s photos of Bastion Point was held at Mallacoota’s Mudbrick Pavilion from 21 to 23 January 2010, culminating in an auction event.

Over 400 people visited the exhibition. All of the 42 works were sold, resulting in over $10,000 being made for the campaign. See our media release here.

Norm’s works were also shown from 8-13 February at The Stables, 58 Service St Bairnsdale; please see the East Gippsland News report on this other hugely successful event.  The  invitation for the show may also be viewed.

Mallacoota Signs Up!


Visitors to Mallacoota over 2010 will have noticed the large number of homes with signs expressing the community opposition to breakwalls, dredges, and beach roads at Bastion Point.

We know the signs have alerted many visitors to what is happening at Bastion Point.

Even the East Gippsland Shire Council is interested – an officer was spotted driving around taking photos of our signs!

Why not Sign Up yourself!
