Coastal Management 

The scenic coast of Geographe Bay is a sandy coastline that is naturally dynamic. The shoreline is sensitive to changing environmental conditions and cycles of accretion and erosion.

The Coastal Management Program (2018-2028) aims to facilitate strategic, effective and sustainable coastal adaptation along the Geographe Bay foreshore.  The program goes beyond just tracking the changes, it includes:

  • adaptation such a relocating or removing structures threatened by erosion
  • active sand nourishment programs to improve protection and retain the sandy beach
  • maintenance and adaptation of the more than 50 coastal protection structures along the Geographe Bay foreshore.

Over the 10 year time frame, detailed data collected through real-time observation and analysis will help us to facilitate strategic, effective and sustainable coastal adaptation. We will be able to plan for the future.

Below are links to some of the data that forms the foundation of our Program as well as links to coastal monitoring data and case studies.
