Mud Islands Rubbish Clean Up Day

November 9, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


About the event

Join Corangamite CMA for a rubbish clean up event at the spectacular Mud Islands in Port Phillip Bay. Mud Islands are a part of the Port Phillip Bay (Western Shoreline) and Bellarine Peninsula Ramsar Site and the Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park. These amazing sand islands are considered an area of international significance and are habitat for many birds, included endangered species and migratory shorebirds.

Due to the currents within Port Phillip Bay, Mud Islands has rubbish wash up on the shoreline at particular times of year. Help us to remove this rubbish and protect the birdlife and marine life of the islands. All rubbish collected will be sorted and data collected to be uploaded onto the Australian Marine Debris Initiative database.


This is a free event but spaces are limited. Make sure to register below.


Meeting Point:

We will be meeting at Queenscliff Harbour, where we will be taking a boat with Queenscliff Dive Centre from the Marina out to the island. Please ensure you arrive on time so that you do not miss the boat and you can fill out required forms before departure.

Catering: Morning tea and lunch will be provided – please provide dietary requirements by contacting Rachael Beecham

Where: Mud Islands, Port Phillip Bay

It may get cold on the boat, so please bring a warm jacket/rain jacket. We will also be wading through water around knee height when we get off the boat, so it is suggested to wear shorts/bathers/wetsuit and/or have a change of clothes.

Bring a hat, drinking water, snacks, sunscreen, binoculars and wear sturdy shoes.

NOTE: If the weather becomes unfavorable for boating, the event will be postponed and participants will be notified as soon as possible.
