Eurobodalla Shire Council has a responsibility to our community to preserve the coast for its natural beauty and the contribution it makes to our economy and lifestyle, and to ensure settlements are resilient to natural coastal hazards.
Council is working on a number of coastal and flood planning projects to identify and address management issues in the coastal zone, including:
- managing risk to people
- preserving coastal ecosystems and natural coastal amenity
- encouraging community use and enjoyment
- maintaining public access to our beaches, headlands and foreshores
- managing risk to public buildings and infrastructure
- managing risk to private property
- balancing each of the above by providing development and economic opportunities.

Estuaries are areas of transition between the land and the sea with environmental, social and economic importance. All major estuaries of Eurobodalla are tourist destinations and are valued for the recreational opportunities they provide. Eurobodalla Shire has five estuaries that are being strategically managed.
Council is helping to prepare a Coastal Management Program for Wagonga Inlet, Mumaga Lake and Moruya River to ensure these estuaries are managed in a way that protects the natural features that underpin their attraction.
