Join the Bellarine Catchment Network and Corangamite CMA for a day weeding on Mud Islands. Help protect and enhance habitat by removing invasive weeds along the beach and dunes.

Mud Islands are part of the Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park and the Port Phillip Bay (Western Shoreline) & Bellarine Peninsula RAMSAR site. The habitat on the islands includes saltmarsh, mudflats and dune shrubland, these habitats are critical for the survival of many species of bird, endangered species like the White-faced Storm Petrel and migratory shorebirds.

Meeting Point: We will be meeting at Queenscliff Harbour (map location here), 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 rachael.beecham@ccma.vic.gov.au

It may get cold on the boat, so please bring a warm jacket/rain jacket. You will get wet. We will 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 unfavourable, the event will be postponed and participants will be notified as soon as possible.
