Beaches & Foreshore Reserves

Using Foreshores for Events

If you are planning an event on a Bass Coast Shire foreshore or beach please contact us to see if you need a permit. We help manage 40 kilometres of foreshore reserves. To ensure everyone can access our beaches and to limit environmental impact of events, we have a Foreshore Use Policy (PDF 144kb).

Please complete the Foreshore use permit application form (PDF 142kb) and forward to Council to process.

This applies to all the reserves we help manage including:

  • Phillip Island north shore (Ventnor to Silverleaves)
  • Rhyll
  • Newhaven
  • Cape Woolamai Safety Beach
  • Grantville (Pier to Deep Creek)
  • Tenby Point
  • Kilcunda (Cemetery to Mabilia Street)
  • Cape Paterson
  • Inverloch foreshore reserves (Wreck Creek to Screw Creek)

For more information or for hard copies of any of the documents on this page please contact our Sustainable Environment team on 1300 BCOAST (226 278).
