South Mindarie Foreshore Reserve will ultimately form part of Tamala Conservation Park, which is a large coastal conservation reserve of regional significance. This reserve is 408 hectares in area and contains a range of plant communities associated with the full series of coastal landforms developed during the younged geological period, the Holocene.
There are examples of still active dunes present, including the older Spearwood Dune system and all four phases of the Quindalup Dune system, the youngest dune system, developed between the past 2,000 - 10,000 years.

Coastal environments are very sensitive to changes. Any minor disturbance to the vegetation cover caused by trampling or fire can result in sand mobilisation and erosion.
