Phillip Island Landcare Group along with 5 local coastcare groups successfully applied for a coastcare grant in 2020/21. The purpose of the grant was to encourage groups to come together and share their knoweledge and understanding of the land through field days and workshops.

The time together was such a positive experience it became the catalyst to formally invite 11 volunteer groups to join the newly formed Phillip Island Land Alliance (PILA). 

The Launch

PILA was formally recognised at our launch, on the 12th of May 2022, when the 11 community groups signed the statement. At the launch we also invited our partners the Bass Coast Landcare Network to launch their 'Teaming up to Tackle Rabbits' program.

We presented at the Coastcare Forum in July 2022. This powerpoint presentation tells the early story of PILA


The Alliance received a coastcare grant to establish its website and build its terms of reference and strategic plan over 4 workshops. These workshops were held quarterly from September 2022 till May 2023
