Sustainability and the Environment

The City of Bayside is gifted with an amazing environment. From our sparkling coastline and its ancient dunes, to the urban forest of our urban streets, there is always something new to discover.

The community of Bayside recognizes the value of our natural environment, as does Bayside City Council. Together we work to enhance and protect the numerous species of native flora and fauna that call our community home.

Sustainability is important to our residents. Bayside City Council supports our community’s transition to a more sustainable way of life through a number of programs and strategies. We also run campaigns throughout the year that create opportunities for our community to learn more about the world around them, and to help them reduce their environmental impact.

Boon Wurrung People

Bayside City Council recognise that for many thousands of years the Boon Wurrung people walked this land and the area we now call Port Phillip Bay, which was a large flat plain where they hunted kangaroos and cultivated the yam daisy. For more information please see our Walks and Trails section of the website.
