    Some information about Charles Sturt’s Coast

    The City of Charles Sturt has 11.5km of coastline. 

    Council works in conjunction with the State Government, community groups and individuals to maintain and manage the precious resource that is our coastline.  Council also manages fences and access ways to and from the beach.

    The Department for Environment Heritage has completed Vegetation Management Plans commissioned by Council for our coast.  These are available on Councils website.  The brochure Local Coastal Plants highlights local plants well adapted to this area.  Our coastline is home to a variety of birds, insects and reptiles. Some of the more common species you may see along our strip include: Australian Kestrel, Pacific Gull, Shingle Back and the Bearded Dragon.

    Our coastal dunes form part of a system that extends from Seacliff to Outer Harbour.  Prior to European settlement the back of our dune system was periodically inundated and swampy.  The area of West Lakes was once a salt marsh and tidal estuary.

    The current sea level was reached between 6,000 and 7,000 years ago forming our current coastline.
