About the wetlands

We will be completing landscaping and environmental works, including upgrades to walking paths and facilities at Seaford Wetlands, the largest remaining natural wetlands in the Port Phillip and Western Port region.

The wetlands are recognised internationally for their exceptional environmental and educational significance. Visitors can enjoy bird-watching, walking and picnics in this important conservation area.

Where are the wetlands?

Seaford Wetlands are within the traditional lands of the Bunurong People. The wetlands are about 30–40 kilometres south east of Melbourne’s CBD, near Seaford foreshore.
