The Dunsborough foreshore car park was established as a gravel coastal car park in the 1970s. Over the years this car park was progressively upgraded and protected from coastal erosion by a rock seawall. As a result of the coastal protection, down-drift erosion to the east of the car park was becoming an issue. As part of a wider foreshore development it was decided that the rock seawall should be removed and modifications to the foreshore use and access should be made.
Shore Coastal was engaged by the City of Busselton to undertake the coastal engineering investigation, detailed design and specification for foreshore works. These works included the detailed design and specification for a 180m length of geotextile sand container revetment, the removal of the existing car park, controlling eastward migration of the Dugulup Brook entrance and reinstatement of the beach and dunes and were completed in 2012.
