Welcome to the website of the Belfast Coastal Reserve Action Group. We are a community group whose objective is to bring together individuals, community groups, local and state government representatives and agencies to establish a co-ordinated management plan for the Belfast Coastal Reserve. The Coastal Reserve extends along the coast from Levy's Point in the East, to Mills Reef (near Port Fairy) in the west, in Victoria, Australia.

'Reports and officer observations confirm up to 20 horses are working on the beach at any one time with training occurring on the beach on daily basis, including weekends, from sunrise until about 10.30am. However, a resident reported racehorses on the beach at about 4pm on 10 February 2016. Council officers have observed horse trucks, horse floats and vehicles blocking access to the boat ramp and making access to the car parking areas difficult with up to 12 horse trucks and floats using all of the available car parking.'
