Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Consultation has concluded

The shelter has now been installed and is open to the public

We are currently creating new plaques to be attached to the shelter and we are aiming for the associated vegetation works to be completed by the end of July, weather permitting.

Please see the planting information for details about plant species and examples of Carey Gully rock that will be used for the rock barrier fence.


BACKGROUND

The cliff top shelter was severely damaged during the storms in late 2016 and requires demolition.

The damaged shelter, originally constructed by locals, was a commemoration of a shelter that existed from circa 1940. The original shelter was said to have been a viewing point to spot schools of fish. Locals have also mentioned that the shelter and bell were used to warn swimmers of sharks coming in too close to shore.

There are some significant features at the site and all due care will be taken in retaining and safely housing these items until the final redevelopment is completed and including them in the new shelter redevelopment.

Some of the features include:

  • Plaques
  • Artwork of a much loved dog
  • Tjilbruke Dreaming Tracks Marker

To hear more about these features and the history of the shelter, please see the Project Information in the Document Library.
