Australia Day Weekend Celebrations Save Our Bay Protest

This Saturday the 26th, in protest against next week’s dredging of Port Phillip Bay, Ocean Kayaks Australia (OKA) and local supporters invite the community to celebrate this year’s clear, clean bay waters with a peaceful but poignant kayak paddle.
Dowload the Flyer.
From 10am onwards up to 25 kayakers will stage a paddle at Elwood Beach in protest against the planned dredging process.
OKA invites families and friends – experienced and first-timers alike - to come along for a free morning of kayaking to experience, first-hand, the beauty of Port Phillip Bay.
Adult and children’s life jackets will be available.
OKA is a new business on the Port Phillip foreshore hiring out kayaks at five beach locations.
Once dredging starts, it is here for the long haul and, the bay will never be the same again. From next week toxic silt will be dumped in the bay relentlessly for years to come. Fish stocks and plant life will decline, the water quality will change.
Kayakers paddled with the dolphins, only 50 metres from the shore at Elwood last week. If a clean, clear bay is a priority to you and your family, come to Elwood beach on Saturday morning to enjoy, perhaps for the last time, the bay as we have known it.
