About us

Welcome to the Shoreham Community website which has been created to give the community a voice and to facilitate communication. It's a place to share ideas, information, skills, resources - a place to find out what's going on in the community - clubs, societies, special interest groups, events, anything that Shoreham residents and visitors might enjoy or find of interest. 

It is an initiative of the Shoreham Community Association Inc. (SCA), managed by SCA volunteers with all cost burdens being met by SCA membership fees. We are keen to create an active and informed community. Find out how you can become a member here. Your support is important.

On our site you'll find information about SCA Projects, upcoming community events on the Community Noticeboard and more.  Details for local events are found on the Calendar page.

  • The Howard Street Walking Track is an important direct linkage between the two halves of Shoreham.  
  • Following the success of our late November efforts, another Working Bee has been planned for the Howard Street walking track on Saturday, 24th March  from 09.30am - 12.00pm
  • The intention is to continue to tidy up the track by clearing weeds, such as blackberry, and fallen vegetation. 

Protecting the Buxton Open Air Chapel

  • In great news for the community, Council voted unanimously on Tuesday, 13th February to rescind the sale of part of Buxton Reserve on which the Buxton Chapel sits. Instead it will acquire the small portion of the chapel in private hands instead.  
  • The next move will be to organise a "Friends" group to look after the site within Buxton Reserve.  This is likely to include SCA members, members of the Flinders and District Historical Society, the Young family, former campers at Camp Buxton, neighbours and others.  A public meeting will be called on Saturday, 14th April 2018 at 2:30PM to kick-start the "Friends" group.

The Common - We’re making The Common safer !

  • The Common has been fully opened up - temporary fences protecting newly grassed areas were removed just in time for Christmas!  The new layout proved a resounding success at the last "Under the Tree" function in January.
  • In association with the Mornington Peninsula Shire, we’re striving to make our park safer for children and passive recreation.  So…

No Driving or Parking on the Shoreham Village Common please !
The Shoreham Tennis Club area is not affected.


Please park on the Byrnes Road shoulder.
Thank you for respecting the new works and the wishes of our community.
This will also let our new plantings get going too!
