There are around 70 million visits to the Australian, Victorian coastline each year. This is because of the generally high standards of the south eastern beaches of Australia due to the coastal management system in place. However the government would like to change it, shifting the focus from coastal care to a focus on the human use of the coast which will threaten the current system. This article is about coastal management.

This article is about solid waste in Australia. Almost everything we do creates waste and as a society we are currently producing more waste than ever before. Governments across Australia and around the world have recognised the difficulties of current consumption patterns, and among other policy responses, have either adopted ambitious targets for reducing waste to landfill or adopted “zero” waste policies.
