Paddle Out - Stop The Southern Blasts

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description


We are calling all surfers, ocean lovers and coastal communities to come together and oppose one of the LARGEST seismic blasting proposals in history.

Multinational corporations are threatening to blast 4.5 million hectares of pristine ocean off the Victorian coastline. Blasts are as loud as an ATOMIC BOMB and endanger species such as whales and dolphins. Scientists and fishing communities are clear—this practice is incredibly damaging to local ecosystems.


Saturday the 23rd of March—join us on Wadawurrung Country to paddle out in support of our ocean. Meet at Cosy Corner, Torquay at 11:30 AM for a midday start. 

Bring your board of choice, your signs and your voice—this is the chance for our community to stand united and show decision-makers that we do not want seismic blasting and offshore oil & gas exploration on our coasts. 

This is an inclusive family-friendly event. You don't need to be a surfer ... paddle out on a kayak, a boogie board, or show your support from the beach! 


- Meet at 11:30 AM at Cosy Corner, Torquay 

- Parking available at nearby Point Danger and Front Beach. 

- BYO signs, tee shirts and something to paddle on

- Don't forget sunscreen, a hat and water

What else can you do? 

- Share this event far and wide!

- Write a letter to your MP urging them to stop this practice (it takes less than a minute using our tool)

- Spread the word: We do not want seismic blasting and new oil and gas on our coast!
