Improving accessibility and open space in the Ocean View Precinct will make this much-loved place more welcoming for everyone.

We love the parks and open spaces along our coastline – they’re part of what makes Queenscliff such a special place. And the Ocean View precinct, with its fantastic views, historic lighthouse and direct access to Hesse Street, is a favourite.
But while the area has a lot to love, we’re looking at ways to make the existing Ocean View precinct more welcoming to everyone. By making the site more accessible for pedestrians, honouring the significance of the remembrance markers, and creating more spaces to spend time in the fresh air, we can make the Ocean View precinct a treasure for residents, and a destination for everyone.
What we're working on now
We're recently concluded a round of consultation for this project. The project design team are currently using this feedback to product a preliminary concept design for the project.
Once the preliminary concept for the project is created, we'll share the design with you, along with a feedback report and information about how your feedback influenced the design.
You'll also have the opportunity to provide additional comments on the preliminary concept – we'll let you know how you can do this when we share the concept with you.
