Vision/ mission statement

We will save Cowes’ rare, north facing beaches for future generations.

What's it all about?


Cowes’ beaches are not the right location for a ferry terminal. These rare, north facing beaches are used by locals and visitors for swimming, walking and boating. The proposed ferry and it’s affected area will change the beaches forever.


Bass Coast Shire Council must engage with the community on this proposal. The information to date has not been adequate and is out of step with community expectation.


The community will fight this proposal, the Save Our Beaches group has already collected more than 2000 signatures in opposition to a Ferry terminal at this location.

What Can I Do?

No Swimming

The beach will be cut in half rendering a large area of this family friendly, safe swimming beach unusable.

Quiet Neighborhood

The proposed terminal is right in the middle of a quiet residential area adding traffic to an area where children ride bikes and walk.

No Waterpsorts

Huge impact upon both locals and tourists who use this beach - swimmers, power boaters, sailors, kayakers and all water users!

Join the Fight Today!

It is planned to extend 250metres into the bay and destroy your beautiful beach.
