Informal access to beaches, dunes, and coastal wetlands and waterways by vehicles and pedestrians can lead to the destruction of native vegetation, reduce vegetative cover, and increase potential for erosion or compaction and weed invasion. Traffic can also displace wildlife or destroy their habitats. To reduce impacts resulting from unimpeded and informal access, eight designated points were developed through the installation of stairways, fencing, mulched path and an interpretive signs. These activities have occurred at Cape Palmerston, Shellgrit Creek, Wilsons Beach, Far Beach, Armstrong Beach, Grasstree Beach and Galbraith Creek. Returning these areas to a more natural state (where possible) is important to facilitate unhindered coastal and riverine erosion and accretion cycles.
