3018Beachpatrol Altona Beaches

Altona Beach Patrol      Watch our Launch Video.  It's great!

Altona Beach forms the southern boundary of the town of Altona, with the Esplanade paralleling the beach. The beach is crossed by the 500 m long Altona Pier. The beach runs roughly east-west for 3 km from the point at Frazer Reserve, past the town to the western drainage channel, called Laverton Creek. There are also picnic areas in foreshore reserves at either end of the beach. The beach is widest near the pier, but narrows west of the groyne, which is located 100 m past the pier. Intertidal and subtidal sand flats front the beach, requiring a long wade to reach deep water.

There's the pier, the park, the white sand and long sweeps of panoramic beach. What's not to like about Altona?. This has to be the undiscovered gem of Melbourne.. Lots of cafes. The family friendly outdoor recreation destination for Melbourne

BP3018 Altona May Clean Up by 3018@beachpatrol.com.au

57kg of rubbish near the boat ramp and dog beach with 42 volunteers in just one hour. At least 115 plastic bottles, 37 cans, 24 glass bottles and a whopping 2,500 cigarette butts!! We also got 20 people to sign the Container Desposit Scheme petition!

25 Volunteers make April Clean up a success for 3018 Altona Beach Patrol by 3018@beachpatrol.com.au

It was a lovely sunny day, which saw 25 people turn up to help collect 24 kgs of rubbish, 54 containers and about 1,500 cigarette butts. It's clear that SUmmer is over and the beach has seen less traffic, but also that council keeps an eye on things and was out combining the beach 2 days before us. We also had more than a few members of the public come up for a chat and the business cards are proving very useful too. We'll order more t-shirts from the left-over grant money and see if we can get some food organised for next event, which will be near the boat ramp and hopefully we'll see even more school kids as Adeline will do some additional promotional work!
