About Point Lonsdale Civic Association

The Point Lonsdale Civic Association is a group of residents and friends of Point Lonsdale who care about:

  • the conservation, protection and maintenance of the beaches, foreshore, dune systems, natural environment and beauty of Point Lonsdale and surrounding areas;
  • the conservation and maintenance of historic buildings, sites and precincts within the Borough of Queenscliffe;
  • the retention of Point Lonsdale as a peaceful holiday resort and residential area consistent with orderly and compatible development; and,
  • the provision and maintenance of public facilities in Point Lonsdale and the wider Region.

The Association was established in 1910 and the present name was adopted in 1961 following the amalgamation of the Point Lonsdale Progress Association (established in 1910) and the Point Lonsdale Advancement League.
