The Save Bastion Point Campaign sees this as a great outcome for recognising the significance of the area, including Bastion Point. The report defines that the Mallacoota Coastal and Inlet Foreshore precinct is significant for its aesthetic, historic, scientific (ecological, geological and geomorphological), social and spiritual values at a State level.
