Visitors and residents using the Walkerville Foreshore in 2020 find a peaceful retreat with well-protected natural, cultural and landscape values, and small-scale facilities, which provide opportunities for nature-based relaxation and quiet enjoyment.
The camping area has been enhanced and offers a range of low-key accommodation nestled in coastal vegetation. Coastal walks provide fine views and interpretive information helps visitors to appreciate Walkerville’s rich heritage.
Vehicle access, parking and boat launching are regulated to provide a safe and pleasant experience for families, other visitors and residents and minimise intrusion on the foreshore. Day visitor areas have been enhanced with defined parking areas, sensitively designed structures and indigenous planting to blend with the coastal setting.
Foreshore protection works have been undertaken to mitigate erosion and climate change impacts are monitored. Walkerville is a highly regarded destination for people who appreciate nature largely free from commercial development and enjoy the area’s safe beaches, beautiful coastal landscapes and rich cultural heritage.
The Committee has worked with the community and government agencies to successfully implement management and maintenance programs, obtain external funding and complete improvement projects.
