About the project

Sandringham Harbour, on Bunurong Sea Country, is an iconic waterside facility.  To ensure it continues to be a safe and thriving community asset for many more years to come, Parks Victoria is developing a Local Port Area Plan (plan).

Guided by the Sustainable Local Ports Framework, the plan is being developed using a place-based approach which leverages local knowledge and expertise to guide the future of local port assets and services. 

Focusing on the ‘on water’ elements, the future plan for Sandringham Harbour aims to improve the safety and function of the harbour responding to changing conditions and user needs, and confirm the community’s aspirations for an upgraded Hampton Pier. 

The plan defines a safer entrance channel, proposes a options for Hampton Pier, provides direction regarding the future of swing moorings and berths managed by Parks Victoria within the harbour, and considers the needs of 'off the beach' boating users like the growing number of stand-up paddle board enthusiasts and kayakers.    

Feedback will help guide Victorian Government investment priorities for local port infrastructure assets where it’s needed most.

The project is guided by a project reference group comprising Parks Victoria, Department of Transport and Bayside City Council

We're working with Parks Victoria to advocate for positive outcomes for all community users of Sandringham Harbour and welcome the Victorian Government’s commitment to upgrading the pier announced in the recent state budget.
