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

3018 Altona BP Clean up by 3018@beachpatrol.com.au

Another clean up done for October thanks to 30 big and small volunteers. We had a slightly smaller catch in kilos, but all those plastic wrappers make a big mess, even if they weigh next to nothing! We also found 1,750 cigarette butts and close to 50 containers (bottle and cans). Well done all!

Our next 3018 Altona cleanup will be on Sunday 10 November, so if you feel like joining in, come find us from 3-4pm on the corner of Pier Street and Esplanade.

3018 Altona Spring clean up by 3018@beachpatrol.com.au

We had a massive turn-out on the first day of Spring with lots of helpers from Geocaching of Victoria and Altona Primary. 58 volunteer altogether managed a respectable 25kgs of rubbish and a record-breaking 4,000 cigarette butts. It was clean when we started, but pristine when we left. 55 minutes of good weather and 5 minutes of blisterting rain andh ail at the end saw us beat a hasty retreat. This hadn't happened for 13 cleans in a row, so we can hardly complain about a great community effort once more.

3018 BP Winter Clean up 21 July 2019 by 3018@beachpatrol.com.au

We made the most of the sunny weather and 20 volunteers who came and helped out to collect 45 containers, 10kgs of rubbish and 1,000 cigarette butts. It wa s good to see that the streets and beach were clean. Maybe it's because it Winter, but we like to think it's because people are becoming better at throwing rubbish in the bin.
