Dune and estuarine restoration works around Narrawallee beach and estuary

The foreshore area of Narrawallee consists of many vegetation communities, including endangered ecological communities. Major restoration work by the volunteers has taken place over the past decade. Maintenance will continue to prevent re-infestation by noxious and environmental weeds. Primary weeding of extended areas and planting of species propagated from seed collected on site is planned for the next 1 – 5 years. This will significantly reduce the re-infestation risk and expand habitat for faunal species that are returning to the area after an absence of many years.

The foreshore area of Narrawallee is an important area for recreation by local residents and tourists and the major attraction resides in its natural views and natural values. The actions outlined in this plan will maximise these natural values.
