Aerial imagery shows that since 2010 the Inverloch Surf Beach coastline has
receded by 45-70 metres on either side of the Surf Club, and over eight
hectares of coastal vegetation has been swept away — close to half of the
vegetated dunes that existed just nine years ago.

Rodger Tomlinson discusses the influence that the position of the
main channel into Andersons Inlet has on Inverloch Surf Beach erosion. He
identifies a range of measures that could assist with managing further erosion,
ranging from nature-based, dune enhancement options through to structural
measures such as offshore reefs and groynes.
