Moving sand

We love our white sandy beaches, but sadly they now come at a price. There is a natural drift of sand northward along the coast. For many years now sand has been trucked from our northern beaches and dumped on southern beaches.

Additionally sand is trapped due to man made features like the Holdfast Bay Marina at Glenelg. This photo shows sand being scooped up ready for transportation to the beach at North Glenelg or to one of the southern beaches.
