About Glenelg - Hopkins Catchment Management Authority

The Glenelg Hopkins region lies south of the Great Dividing Range in Victoria's south west. The region is renowned for its scenic beauty, dramatic coastline and rich biodiversity. It covers approximately 26,000 sq km, extending from Ballarat in the east to the South Australian border in the west, and from the southern coast of Victoria to the townships of Harrow and Ararat in the north. There are four basins that occur within the region: Glenelg, Millicent, Hopkins and Portland Coast.

The boundaries of the region include marine and coastal waters out to the state limit of three nautical miles. The region is characterised by flat volcanic plains in the south, while the Grampians, Dundas tablelands, Black Ranges and Central Highlands are dominant in the north.
