Renewal works on Narrowneck Reef have reduced erosion from large waves and promoted sand build-up to protect the beach during storms.
The Narrowneck area has a history of serious erosion, particularly from storms.
In 2018, a renewal project extended the life of the artificial reef which was built in 1999. The structure was built using sand containers made from geotextile fabric
Project works included:
Watch our video to see how the containers were placed on the sea floor.
We are continuing to watch how the reef functions so it continues to provide coastal protection.
Monitoring shows that the reef has increased the beach's resilience against impact from storms and ocean swells.
