We Care for the Coast

The Barwon Heads Caravan Park is operated by the Barwon Coast Committee of Management Inc. (Barwon Coast). Barwon Coast is appointed by the State Government to care protect and manage coastal crown land reserves on behalf of the Victorian Community. This inlcudes coastal crown land reserves at Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads, Connewarre and Breamlea.

Barwon Coast also operates the Riverview Family Caravan Park in Ocean Grove, the seasonal Riverside Campground and Breamlea Caravan Park. All revenue raised through the operation of the caravan parks and campground is used for the management and maintenance of facilities and infrastructure of all coastal reserves within the Barwon Coast area of management including the Caravan Parks.

The coastal reserves managed by Barwon Coast have a very high conservation value and play an important role in providing a diverse and quality terrestrial and marine habitat for all local native species of flora and fauna, supporting overall ecological sustainability. Barwon Coast works hard to protect these environments in particular the barrier sand dune system that protects the beach and inland areas from sea surges and wind laden with salt spray.
