Coastal Erosion

Our Coastal Erosion Management Plan ensures a focus on risk prioritisation, prevention and restoration in responding to coastal erosion issues affecting areas under our control and management.

In 2016/17 we allocated funds to continue delivery of the Coastal Erosion Management Plan.

The plan is intended to mitigate coastal erosion issues along the Darwin coastline; provide protection of nationally significant military heritage; and with the added benefit of managing legacy asbestos issues for the overall benefit of the community.

Erosion mitigation works completed most recently include:

  1. Redirection of stormwater outlet pipes to the bottom of the cliffs at three locations along the Nightcliff coastline
  2. Installation of armour rock at four locations along the Nightcliff coastline; and
  3. Installation of armour rock at one location along the East Point coastline
