Council works closely with local and regional groups such as the Bellarine Catchment Network (BCN) on vegetation and conservation management. We value the contribution of community and volunteers in this work.
We encourage all residents to grow native plants in their garden, particularly those which are indigenous to this area and can withstand the salt air and sea breezes. Planting indigenous plants will maintain the character of our coastal environment, preserve the plant species, and encourage birdlife, all while being low-maintenance for you to upkeep.
Council is responsible for planting, care and maintenance of street trees and trees in parks that it owns or has Committee of Management responsibility for. We're also responsible for the care and protection of native vegetation on the many coastal reserves in the Borough. Our tree planting program aims to plant native trees at the request of ratepayers. If you have any suggestions, please contact Council.
Examples of plants that are indigenous to the Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale area include:
Borough of Queenscliffe
50 Learmonth Street (PO Box 93)
Queenscliff, VIC 3225
