Narooma's shoreline works recommence in February

Published: 28 November 2022

Restoration work along Narooma’s Wagonga Inlet will recommence after the peak summer holiday period.

The first stage of the Living Shoreline project, involving the installation of a new oyster reef, was complete.

Eurobodalla Council’s natural resources coordinator Heidi Thomson said the next stage of the project would begin in February 2023. The work includes a foreshore realignment and planting of native species by the Wagonga Local Aboriginal Land Council.

“Natural plant communities like saltmarsh and other low growing foreshore species will be used to reclaim the shoreline,” Ms Thomson said.

“Then we will install formal access ways, a boardwalk, jetty and floating pontoon.”

Until stage two of the project begins, Ms Thomson said the area will be reopened for the public to use.

“Part of the temporary gravel road was removed and reseeded with grass so the area can open back up for the summer season,” Ms Thomson said.

“The construction fence along the foreshore will also be temporarily removed.”

The shoreline project is a partnership between Council, NSW DPI Fisheries and the Nature Conservancy. Read more on the project web page.
