The Glamorgan Spring Bay Municipality extends from the Denison River at Bicheno to the bottom of Bust Me Gall Hill at Runnymede. It takes in the townships of Bicheno, Coles Bay, Swansea, Triabunna, Orford and Buckland. The Municipality covers the Swan Apsley, Little Swanport and Prosser Catchments.

Local industries include farming, forestry, fishing, aquaculture, viticulture and tourism.

The Glamorgan Spring Bay Municipality has a large array of plants, birds and animals – many of which are unique to this area. This area also has a significant number of national and state listed threatened flora and fauna. It also boasts two Ramsar Wetlands and three National Parks.

Glamorgan Spring Bay Council in partnership with NRM South supports an NRM Facilitator (Catchments to Coast Coordinator).

Project and engagement activities run through the Glamorgan Spring Bay Council Catchments to Coast program and align with the local catchment plans,  regional delivery through NRM South and the NRM Strategy for Southern Tasmania 2015-20.
