About the Project

The Corangamite CMA and Surfing Victoria partnership aims to achieve a shared vision of strengthening the community’s connection, in particular the surfing community’s connection, with the local coastal environment and coastal conservation groups.

As part of the partnership, Corangamite CMA has hosted 80 Indigenous youth group representatives from Ballarat and Bendigo to attend the 2018 Woorangalook Koori Surfing Titles earlier in the year and take part in rock pool ramble education sessions coinciding with the surfing titles.
