Key Facts

The beach immediately south of the Two Rocks Marina has experienced ongoing sea wrack accumulation since the construction of the marina, particularly during summer months, resulting in issues with beach usability, public safety and odour.

The City, in consultation with the Two Rocks Yanchep Residents Association, will be conducting a sea wrack management trial from December 2021 to March 2022 involving the following:

  • Regular beach monitoring to determine when the deposited sea wrack becomes an issue;
  • Pushing of the deposited sea wrack back into the ocean using loaders on the beach during favourable weather conditions; and
  • Deployment of GPS drifters into the water with the sea wrack to track sea wrack movements and confirm that the wrack is removed from the beach area.

 This project is partly funded by the State Government via the Department of Planning Lands and Heritage 2021/22 Coastwest Grant.
