South Coast Management Group
Site visit - Wilson Head PDF Print E-mail

In April 2010, SCMG members had a site visit around Wilson Head. Shire of Denmark officers Helen Heydenrych and Sam Williams hosted the event.

ImageThe scene was set at McGeary's carpark, overlooking Ocean Beach. Future linkages between the sites and the upcoming review of the Coastal Management Plan were highlighted.

Recent on-ground work was showcased at Black Hole carpark, including improved drainage management, two pedestrian access ways down to the rocks and a coastal location sign placed at the back of the carpark in full view from the steps.

The group finished up at Sinker Bay at the southern end of the road and discussed management options for the site.
