Alluvium undertook a review of geomorphic context and processes, providing advice to inform the update of Coastal Management Plans at Blacks Beach, Bucasia Beach, Grasstree Beach and Midge Point on the Mackay coastline.

The assessment was informed through site inspections, existing literature and data, and discussions with representatives from Reef Catchments and Mackay Regional Council (MRC).

Reviews included consideration of all coastal zone processes, including waterways, estuary and shoreline dynamics, trajectory of change, implications, as well as current approaches to management, including the influence of existing coastal structures.  Key project outcomes included recommendations for the future management of each site.
