Coast and Marine

The Corangamite region includes 175 square kilometres of Victoria’s coastal fringe and approximately 450 square kilometres of in-shore coastal waters.

The coastal and marine environments within the Corangamite region are highly diverse. Marine habitats include intertidal rocky reefs, shallow rocky reefs, deep rocky reefs, pelagic waters, sand beaches, subtidal sandy and muddy seabeds, and intertidal mudflats.

Coastal habitats are dominated by a variety of vegetation classes, with Coastal Dune Scrub, Coastal Headland Scrub, Coastal Tussock Grassland, and Coastal Saltmarsh EVCs being most vulnerable to threatening processes.
