Information on sulphur smell in Borough of Queenscliffe

Friday, 26 April 2019

Council has received a number of enquiries regarding offensive smells in areas of Point Lonsdale. The City of Greater Geelong advises that the smell is a result of Lake Victoria drying out and gases being released as the organic matter at the bottom of the lake breaks down.

As the lake is located in the City of Greater Geelong, BoQ understands the City is working with Parks Victoria and the EPA in response to this situation.
Residents with further questions can contact Parks Victoria directly on 13 1963.
