“Parks and Wildlife is urging visitors to the national park to ensure their vehicles and shoes are clean prior to entry, especially if they have recently visited other areas where weeds are present,” Mr Lullfitz said.
“Once another round of weed control has been undertaken this autumn, local native plant seedlings will be planted to rehabilitate the degraded area where the weeds previously dominated.”
Mr Lullfitz said the joint project also includes the installation of box steps and improved drainage to prevent erosion on the beach access track.
“Box steps have been installed and have stopped the erosion that was forming as a result of poor surface water management and increased foot traffic,” he said.
“The next step in the site’s improvement is to stabilise the track and install drainage by re-forming the existing track with hard-packed limestone, which will direct water off the sides of the track and stop the track from eroding.”
The project has been made possible with assistance from volunteers, Dunsborough Coast and Land Care, the Southwest Catchments Council, Yallingup Land Conservation District Committee, the Cape to Cape Catchments Group and a State Government Coastwest grant.
