Reducing risks to Country

6 June 2022

Following community consultation in early 2021, GLaWAC and Parks Victoria have developed a Draft Landscape Plan for the Shoreline Drive area between Paradise Beach and Seaspray in Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park.

The development of the Shoreline Drive Landscape Plan is a key strategy identified in the Gunaikurnai and Gippsland Lakes Victorian Government Joint Management Plan for this section of the Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park.
The purpose of the Draft  Landscape Plan is to ensure that the Shoreline Drive area of the Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park continues to be a place to access recreational opportunities, while significantly reducing the harmful impacts that visitors are having on Country and cultural heritage.

The proposed changes will be important to ensure Country is cared for and can be enjoyed for generations to come.
The Landscape Plan has  considered the following uses:
Day visitor and camping sites
Boating access
Beach Access
Future aspirations of the Gunaikurnai people

The Draft Shoreline Drive Landscape Plan Summary highlights the guiding principles for the Landscape Plan and the proposed changes. The changes are subject to available funding and will be staged to support implementation.

To have your say or access the entire draft plan, please contact Matt Holland – Parks Victoria Regional Project Coordinator (Gunaikurnai) on 8427 2503, or email:

We welcome any comments or suggestions by the 24th of June
