Three Beaches in Douglas Shire will share in funding to help revitalise their rich natural habitat following the unprecedented Monsoon Trough earlier this year.
Revitalisation projects at Cow Bay Beach, Pretty Beach and Oak Beach have been given the green light as part of the Australian Government’s Environmental Recovery Package.
Douglas Shire Council will assist with the delivery of the projects.
Works at Cow Bay, Oak Beach and Pretty Beach Beach will include the restoration of dunes as well as reinstating natural dune-building processes to reduce damage during future disaster events.
Federal Leichhardt MP Warren Entsch said the region was renowned for its pristine beaches and coastline.
