Inverloch Coastal Resilience Project The ongoing Inverloch Coastal Resilience Project began in 2019 with a major investigation into the erosion sequence at Inverloch. The project included a wide-ranging community survey, a project report and four specialist consultant reports. In 2020 the ICPR released another report and a documentary, while the latest work, as of March 2021, is below. See all the Inverloch Coastal Resilience Project reports and media releases here.

4 March 2021: Update of Inverloch Beach Monitoring Report, Jul-Dec 2020
This report analyses the results of beach monitoring carried out by SGCS volunteers between July and December 2020. It includes a detailed analysis of the accelerating coastline recession that has occurred at Wreck Creek and Flat Rocks and reiterates the Society’s calls for urgent active dune management to avoid further significant loss of ecological values over the next 6 months.

4 March 2021: Andersons Inlet Evolution and Surf Beach Erosion, Griffith Centre for Coastal Management – December 2020
This report by Professor Emeritus Rodger Tomlinson and Ana Paula da Silva identifies that formation of a new channel into Andersons Inlet off Pt Smythe in 2009 may have been the trigger for commencement of the Inverloch Surf Beach coastline recession which began in 2012 and is continuing in 2021. The report also undertakes a preliminary analysis of potential management strategies for the Surf Beach.
