WESTORNPORT.. IT’S WORTH SAVING

The bay has been regenerating beautifully since we defeated aluminium smelters, bitumen plants, container terminals and all the rest. Save Westernport has spent the last three years showing AGL just how much Westernport communities care about their bay. Still, AGL chooses not to listen.
