  • The State Environment Protection Policy (Waters) released in 2018 identifies the beneficial uses and environmental quality objectives that apply to different areas of Victoria. These areas are called segments. This data includes the spatial boundaries of these segments and can assist users of the policy identify which values apply in particular areas.

  • Victorian state-wide dataset containing information on natural features at each ocean beach relating to the surf zone and hydrology, beach system or type, dominant shoreline geology and beach presence. The dataset includes surf zone data on rip currents, swash gradient, tidal range (neap and spring), modal wave height, dominant swell direction and wave frequency. This dataset has been adapted from the Australian Beach Safety and Management Program (ABSAMP) 1999, joined with the VicCoastline 2008 dataset and the geology classified using the smartline coastal data segmentation dataset as produced in the Australian Coastal Geomorphic and Stability Mapping Project.

  • Dataset containing an indication of the geographic extent covered by other Coastal Plans (non-CAPS) identified in 'Section 8.1 Other Coastal Plans', of the Victorian Coastal Council’s 2010-11 Annual Report. The dataset contains attributes identifying the report title, year of the report, Coastal Board region, unique identifier assigned to report, link that allows the report to be directly referenced, and link to source website page used to locate and obtain document. To support the capture of a suitable geographic extent covered by Coastal Plans each plan was reviewed and categorised in terms of the area it covered. For plans covering a local government area, Catchment Management Authority, Coastal Management Board area, or township, a nominal buffer was applied around the spatial extent of these administrative units. For reports containing a clear study area, this boundary was captured and used to depict the geographical area covered by the report.

  • This layer provides the boundaries of significant marine environmental assets which have been identified on the basis of their environmental value (at statewide, bioregional or local significance scale) for marine biodiversity and/or marine ecological processes. Victoria's marine protected areas, including the Marine National Parks and Marine Sanctuaries, are not included in this leayer unless they fall within the boundaries of larger identified asset areas. Separate expert workshops were held to identify these marine environmental assets in each of the following marine regions: Port Phillip Bay, Western Port, Western Victoria and Gippsland. The relative environmental significance of each asset identified was also rated by experts using the following categories: statewide, bioregional or local. Within each category, assets whose value relates primarily to use by birds that are not exclusively marine were rated separately to those whose value relates to exclusively marine species or ecological processes. These significance ratings were assessed separately for each region but the comparability of asset ratings across regions was then reviewed. This supersedes the earlier ASSET_MARINE layer. Blue Whale feeding/ Bonney upweling and Blue Whale Distribution asset areas were also identified through the above process, but have not been included in the layer because they encompass the majority of Victorian waters.

  • Victorian state-wide dataset containing all ocean beach adminstration information including Committees of Management (COM) and Local Government Authorities (LGA) names, nearest town, tenure id and parcel spi. Dataset has been created using the Australian Beach Safety and Management Program (ABSAMP) beach location data combined with Vicmap Property Parcel Polygons (PARCEL_MP) and the DELWP owned land management text database

  • This dataset maps the geomorphic habitat environments (facies) for 54 Victorian coastal waterways. The classification system contains 11 easily identifiable and representative environments: Barrier/back-barrier, Central Basin, Channel, Coral, Flood- and Ebb-tide Delta, Fluvial (bay-head) Delta, Intertidal Flats, Mangrove, Rocky Reef, Saltmarsh/Saltflat, Tidal Sand Banks (and Unassigned). These types represent habitats found across all coastal systems in Australia. Most of the 54 coastal waterways have a "Modified" environmental condition (as opposed to "Near Pristine"), according to the National Land and Water Resources Audit definition.

  • Victorian State-wide dataset containing features of interest including boating clubs, camping grounds, caravan parks, historic sites, lifesaving clubs and lookouts as identified by the Victorian Regional Coastal Boards and reviewed as part of the Future Coasts SECAP project.
