Did you know?
Are you wondering what’s happening at Old Bar Beach this week?
We’ve just commenced a second sand scraping trial, which provides a temporary sand buffer on the Beach. The sand is designed to be to be eroded by the ocean, protecting the existing coastline on a temporary basis. The location is the same section of Old Bar Beach where the first trial last November was undertaken. These trial works replicate and build on the successful first trial, and others that have been conducted elsewhere along the NSW coastline. We’ll be reporting to the community on the success of the trials and will use these results to develop a long term coastal management plan for the Beach.

While pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the works, sections of the beach and beach access points will be closed during operations to ensure public safety – we ask for your cooperation until the works conclude in 10 days. #OldBarBeach
