Summer by the sea

Each year during the January school holidays, Coastcare Victoria, delivered by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), coordinates the delivery of hundreds of free ‘Summer by the Sea’ activities all along the coastline.

In 2021, in order to keep Victorians safe, the program was online! 

Summer by the Sea officially wrapped up on Sunday 24 January, but due to popular demand, they’ve decided to make the entire Summer by the Sea program available online until Sunday 28 February 2021. It’s a great opportunity to check out the whole program and catch up on an activity you may have missed, or have another look at something you found interesting and enjoyable during January.

In addition to making all of our activities and videos available, they’ve also added Hindi to our list of transcripts and captions. Other languages available include English, Arabic, Hindi, Punjabi, Vietnamese, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese.

The entire program is available online now at
