Short term

Beach Patrol, through the power of local resident members and community spirit, is helping to clean the beaches of Melbourne.

Beach Patrol is a chain of volunteer community groups each defined by suburb, post code and t-shirt colour.

Starting in 2009 with 3206 Beach Patrol - Middle Park, it quickly became evident that many 3206 residents cared greatly about the condition of their local beaches and were in fact willing to donate one hour of their time each month to help keep the beaches cleaner and safer for the greater enjoyment of all. Beach Patrol - 3207 Port Melbourne was soon up and running and following on 3182 St Kilda and 3186 Brighton Beach Patrol soon followed on.  By the mid 2015, there were 18 groups running, covering over 50 km of beach across the top of Melbourne's Port Phillip Bay with approx. 1500 volunteers signed up to help keep our beaches clean.
