Point Lonsdale Groyne Investigations

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) have worked with coastal engineering consultants Cardno to investigate options for the protection and preservation of the Point Lonsdale front beach.

A detailed analysis of groyne field design options and a study of potential impacts is presented in a slideshow below and the full report can be found in the document library below.

Community feedback from the August 2018 consultation on groyne options to maintain sand at the Point Lonsdale front beach has been considered by the Government and the community is now invited to have their say on the preferred option for additional groyne locations and materials utilised to maintain sand at Point Lonsdale front beach.

Two open houses are being held to provide people with the option to attend an afternoon or evening session:

  • Friday 22 February 2019, between 5pm-7pm
  • Saturday 23 February 2019, between 1pm-3pm

Location: Gill Hall, 1 Albert Street, Point Lonsdale

Registrations are not required to attend, please turn up on the day.

Thankyou for sharing your photos of the beaches around Lonsdale Bight

Your photos of the beaches around the Lonsdale Bight have helped to build a photo timeline of sand movement over the years. Your photos have provided a recent and historical snapshot of the beaches across all seasonal conditions.

Photos were an important part of the community consultation and contributed to the development of the outcomes, options and actions summary.

Photos have been uploaded to the photo gallery and are shown here.
