  • This dataset was developed from the database of Ocean Sciences Institute of Sydney University (AUSEABED) and from surveys conducted by MAFRI.

  • 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.

  • Scientific review and dataset on developing a criteria for identifying key fish habitat locations and focussed on major Victorian bays and inlets (Port Philip Bay, Western Port, Corner Inlet and Gippsland Lakes). The recreational marine fish species habitat in the dataset are King george whiting, snapper, sand flathead, calamari, black bream and gummy shark. Commissioned by the Victorian Fisheries Authority (VFA) and later digitised by DELWP, the consultancy report was produced by the University of Melbourne. Kalu. Commissioned by VFA. developing criteria for identifying key fish habitat locations

  • 20m resolution bathymetry and 5m contour intervals derived from 20m resolution bathymetry for nearshore Victorian Coast, LiDAR-derived bathymetry plus small area of multibeam-derived bathymetry on Westernport Bay. This dataset covers the Victorian coast, generally extending to the 20m depth contour. This dataset is based on information acquired between November 2008 and April 2009 to support the Victorian Governments Future Coasts Project.

  • Dataset containing an indication of the geographic extent covered by each current Coastal Action Plan identified in 'Table 2: Coastal Action Plan Status', 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.

  • Victorian state-wide dataset containing facilities at all ocean beaches, in addition to assessing the nature and level of physical beach hazards at each beach, and thereby the level of public risk and safety. Facilities are indicated as present (true= T) or absent (false= F) and include bbq, picnic areas, phone, shops, showers, swimming pool, toilets and water. Beach safety is indicated by a hazard rating score (0-10) based on the physical characteristics of the beach that could impact on public swimming safety. The beach name is also denoted. The data outputs were identified in the Australian Beach Safety and Management Program (ABSAMP) undertaken jointly by Surf Life Saving Australia (SLCA) and the Coastal Studies Unit (CSU) of the University of Sydney in late 1999.

  • Dataset containing recreational boating facilities including pier/jetty, boat ramp, marina, yacht club/motor boat club, multipurpose/safe haven each providing different services and functions. The features have been ranked by a hierachy delineated from Local, District and Regional and led to the development of the Boating Services Level Index (BSLI). The dataset was created for the recreational boating facilities framework document in Febuary 2014 and the Central Coastal Board (CCB).

  • Aerial imagery to identify seagrass, reef and sediment habitat distributions for various marine habitat mapping projects across Victoria between 1997 to 2011 which have been subsumed into the Statewide Marine Habitat Map 2021.

  • 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.

  • This dataset was developed from the database of Ocean Sciences Institute of Sydney University (AUSEABED) and from surveys conducted by MAFRI.
