Boating and swimming zones

Boating and dedicated swimming only zones have been introduced on Port Phillip Bay for the beaches between Sandridge and Elwood. The zones are clearly marked by navigation markers located on the water and signage on the shore.
  • From 12 midday Tuesday 22 September to 6 pm Sunday 24 October, the City of Port Phillip will enter into the Election Period for the Council Elections.

    You can still contact us during this period and we’ll resume regular operation on Monday 26 October.
