In 2021, the Department of Environment, Land, Water
and Planning (DELWP) constructed two new
groynes and a section of rock seawall at Apollo Bay to
help manage the impacts of coastal erosion.
The new 70-meter-long rock groynes run
perpendicular to the shoreline and be located just south of the Milford St revetment and to the south of Milford Creek.
Sections of rock seawall will be constructed between
the two Groynes with an aim to protect the dune,
walking path, cypress trees and road from erosion.
