Welcome to Port Phillip EcoCentre

The EcoCentre is a vibrant community hub, reconnecting people to the natural world
and building relationships to inspire, educate and demonstrate.




Nature Play Week

11-19 April 2015

The EcoCentre is hosting two fantastic Nature Play Week activities for your family to explore the wildlife in the city suburbs.

Baykeeper Shell Survey at Point Ormond, 11 April from 1-2pm ($10/$5) book here

Little Critters: Elwood Canal Walk, 18 April from 1-2pm ($10/$5) book here



  The EcoCentre acknowledges the Yalukit Willam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located. We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and elder members of our multicultural community.

We proudly work in partnership with Aunty Carolyn Briggs and the Boon Wurrung Foundation.
