Have your say on future management and conservation at Cape Otway Lightstation 


Information is being sought on how the community value the Cape Otway Lightstation precinct.

The Great Ocean Road Coast and Parks Authority wants to hear your ‘Tales of the Cape’, to help guide the future management of the iconic Lightstation

Cape Otway is on the lands of the Gadubanud People, part of Eastern Maar Country, with rich cultural heritage and a wealth of environmental values.

The Great Ocean Road Coast and Parks Authority currently leases this site from Parks Victoria and will take on land management responsibility by 1 November 2025.

We are seeking community input to help guide the conservation and management of the site. Locals, visitors, and those who value the Lightstation precinct can share what they value about the site via an online survey and/or photo gallery which can be accessed here: https://haveyoursay.greatoceanroadauthority.vic.gov.au/tales-cape

Further information on how and why locals and visitors value the site will provide us with guidance on how to manage this special part of the coast into the future.

The survey and online photo gallery submissions will be open until the 16th June 2024.

Help us by sharing this opportunity 

We would appreciate you sharing this opportunity to contribute to the future management of this site with friends, family and community groups you are a part of.
