Title: 30. The Islands

Running from Port Welshpool to Reeves Beach, this landscape setting type has many low and sandy scrub islands in an extensive estuarine system. The setting type is very flat and features the historic town of Port Albert. This is one of the few setting types comprising mostly water and it manifests a lakeland quality similar in character to the Gippsland Lakes.

The character of this area is important from both the natural and cultural stand point.

Special Considerations

  • The historic township of Port Albert should be respected with any future subdivisions or building forms.
  • This area is of outstanding scenic quality and requires appropriate planning controls to protect the sensitive landscape.
