If it's sea glass that you are trying to find on beaches in and around Melbourne, then this is the page you will be interested in reading.
Some of these I have personally spent time on wandering the foreshore in the hope of finding a few treasures.
Other beaches, some of my friends on Social media have shared their success with me. There are also links here, shared to pages on my friend's, David and Lyn, website, Odyssey Sea Glass
Note that there are usually conditions that make for finding sea glass more often than not. That being, the time of the day, the time of the month, the moon's cycles, the population, industrialization of the area and of course the weather.
The Victorian coastline is vast and diverse. It includes sandy bays, golden sands, rugged cliffs, stunning rock formations and exhilarating ocean beaches.
Along the coast are regional cities, beach suburbs, holiday towns, fishing villages and coastal resorts.
I am sure everyone would love to hear from you if you have been lucky enough to find some treasures and don't mind sharing your good fortune. It's understandable that folk like to keep their find tightly guarded but there is plenty of sea glass to go around so feel free to let us in on the secret, here :-)
The Seaford Foreshore Reserve is one of the few remaining substantial, continuous strands of natural coastal vegetation near Melbourne. Seaford is notable for this reserve, which divides the beach from Nepean Highway along the whole length of the suburb.
Situated on the eastern shoreline of Port Phillip, Frankston has been a popular seaside destination of Melbourne since the 1880s. Frankston Beach is still one of the most frequented in Victoria, and is recognized as one of the cleanest in Australia.
