Twelve Apostles Pipeline Project

Schedule of works and timeline

Two 11-kilometre pipelines will connect the Twelve Apostles Visitor Centre to Port Campbell to improve environmental safeguards and improve visitor experience as visitation to the site continues to grow.

One pipeline will provide a link to carry sewage from the Visitor Centre toilets to the Port Campbell Sewage Treatment Plant, ensuring Environmental Protection Authority standards are met as visitor numbers continue to rise.

An additional pipeline will be installed alongside, supplying drinkable water to the visitor centre. Currently water is trucked in daily, and the pipeline will remove over 500 trips every year.

Duration and key dates

Works commence: September 2019

Estimated completion: mid-2021.

Project funding

$8.6 million
