Sellicks Beach Shelter and Redevelopment

Consultation has concluded



SHELTER UPGRADE COMING SOON

After feedback from the community and meetings with the Sellicks Area Residents Association (SARA) we are pleased to confirm the following outcomes:

To avoid the busy summer period, construction on the shelter, installation of the barrier fence and landscaping has been moved to commence in March/April 2020.

We will continue to keep this page updated.


  • The barrier fence is to be kept as part of the project, however we will arrange for an alternate design to reduce potential scour of the cliffs and for it to be made of material that doesn’t distract from the view of the beach.
  • The wall and walkway from the carpark will remain and have the mortar re-pointed as part of the project.
  • Landscaping will focus to the northern side of the shelter and be made up of crushed rock and appropriate plants for a dry environment. Access to the stone wall along the car park will be included for use by the community to sit on and take in the view.
  • Once a landscape design has been created, we will forward through to all key stakeholders including SARA for feedback.

Please see the landscaping plan in the document library (top right of this page) 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 current damaged shelter, constructed by locals, is 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.
