return this part of the coastline to a more natural environment
The work involved:
demolishing the disused former Marsden Lifeguard Station and canoe store - these were closed for many years, and were at an increasing risk of collapse - demolishing the buildings helped to return the area to a more natural environment
rebuilding Redwell Steps - the concrete on the lower steps was particularly vulnerable to natural coastal erosion, so they are being replaced with a more sustainable timber and steel structure
Access to Marsden Bay
You can access Marsden Bay from Camel Island and Marsden Grotto during the work.
