The land we manage

The breadth of the land and marine waters along the Great Ocean Road that the Authority will eventually manage is significant.

Along its 243 kilometers, there are nearly 170,000 hectares of Crown land, three Marine National Parks, three Marine Sanctuaries, and two National Parks. 

In the next three years the transfer of approximately 1,000 parcels of land and attached assets to the Authority will take place.

Each land and asset transfer will require significant work and collaboration with the current land managers. The approach involves extensive mapping of cultural, social, environmental, and economic values and uses attached to each parcel and asset. Once complete, this work will provide timelines for transfers and will be communicated to all stakeholders, community and other user groups.
