Phillip Island South and North Coast Key Area Plan
Phillip Island attracts upwards of 3.7 million visitors a year and is in one of Australia’s fastest growing regions. The north and south coasts of Phillip Island have outstanding natural and cultural values requiring coastal managers, Phillip Island Nature Park, to adopt a collaborative and sensitive approach to their care and management of the coasts.
Inspiring Place led a multi-disciplinary team that analysed existing use and values to develop strategies to minimise human impacts on the area’s values while enabling access and enhancing visitor and user experiences of the coast.
The plan outlines priorities for investment in infrastructure, to negotiate conservation outcomes with other land managers and provides a tool for sustainable management of the coast.
