Works to rehabilitate a stretch of coastline in the South West, regarded as one of the State’s best kept secrets, are now complete.

The Binningup restoration was finished recently, with the erection of fences on the northern and southern ends of the main swimming beach to keep people from walking on the dunes.

Jute matting and bushing have been installed to help in rebuilding the dunes, along with the planting of native seedlings.

The Shire of Harvey, in partnership with the Binningup Coastcare and Environment Group, obtained $25,000 in the State Government’s Coastwest funding round for the project in April.

The works were completed last Wednesday.

Shire of Harvey president Paul Gillett said the revamp was important to protect the area’s ecosystems that were part of the “beautiful” coastline.

“It is important to conserve the quality of our coastlines so they can be enjoyed by many generations to come,” he said.
