Parks Victoria has just issued Draft Strategic Management
Plans for the Ramsar sites at:

Port Phillip Bay (west) & the Bellarine Peninsula
Western Port Bay
Gippsland Lakes
Hattah-Kulkyne Lakes
Lake Albacutya

Submissions have to be made by 15th May.

Copies are available on
(click publications and then draft management plans...)
or from 13 1963

I've only skimmed them but they make you appreciate just how
much has to be done to conserve these sites.  For instance,
there is no legal basis for excluding jet skis from the
lagoon on Mud Island as the relevant boating laws are about
safety - not environmental considerations.
