The Regional Catchment Strategy for the Port Phillip & Western Port region

Welcome to the Port Phillip & Western Port Regional Catchment Strategy

This strategy aims to strengthen the health and resilience of our region’s natural environment. 

To do this, the strategy:

  • Defines environmental assets that underpin healthy and resilient ecosystems
  • Assesses their current condition
  • Describes measurable targets for their future condition, bearing in mind the potential for future climate change
  • Shows which organisations are leading the pursuit of each target
  • Provides maps and information to help Government organisations, Councils and communities work together to plan and undertake action to achieve the targets, monitor and measure success, learn and adapt. 


This strategy was developed with Victorian Government organisations, Councils and many other organisations, community groups and individuals including:

  • Region-wide agencies including Melbourne Water, Parks Victoria, Environment Protection Authority, Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Port Phillip & Westernport Catchment Management Authority
  • Local governments including Casey, Whittlesea, Hume, Moonee Valley, Hobson's Bay, Manningham, Brimbank, Greater Geelong, Mitchell, Moorabool, Mornington Peninsula, Nillumbik
  • Phillip Island Nature Parks, Crib Point Stony Point Crown Land Reserve Committee of Management, Wurundjeri people and Boon Wurrung people.
