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 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.
