A wetland at Derrinallum

Wetlands are a major feature of the Corangamite region, covering about five per cent of the total land mass. Within the region, two sites are recognised under the Ramsar convention as being of International significance and 24 sites are listed on the Directory of Important Wetlands Australia (DIWA).

Wetlands provide a range of important environmental services, including habitat for a wide variety of species, purification of water, groundwater replenishment and recreational opportunities.



The Corangamite CMA, in collaboration with key partners, has renewed the Port Phillip Bay (Western Shoreline) and Bellarine Peninsula Ramsar Site Management Plan.
