Ocean Beach Conservation Area

What we do

Tackle environmental issues in Ocean Beach Conservation Area to sustain the area’s natural and recreational values. The conservation area contains Tasmania’s longest beach, at least 5 threatened native vegetation communities, has an endemic subspecies of manna gum, and contains a community of the endangered Northern Leek Orchid. The area provides important habitat for threatened beach-nesting birds, shearwaters, and the critically endangered orange-bellied parrot.
