Summer by the Sea

Summer by the Sea is a great opportunity to discover Victoria’s coastal and marine environments. Victoria’s precious coastal and marine environments support a wide variety of species and habitats. Summer by the Sea activities give you a chance to find out more about these remarkable places and to learn about some of the challenges facing our marine and coastal environments.

In 2022, we have a mixed model program including face to face, online and campaign activities!
