Installation of beach webcam & weather station

Plans are well advanced to install a high-tech 24/7 Commando beach webcam with an integrated Davis weather station, on the NMB at Loch Sport. This system will provide quality live vison of the ocean conditions and accurate local weather monitoring and reporting. This will be a valuable resource for the benefit of all recreational fishermen. Funding is being sought and both Parks Victoria & the  Gunai Kurnai traditional owners have given their approval for the proposed installation to proceed.

Beach access mat at Stockyard Hill

Association members have located a beach mat that was purchased by Community effort in 2014 and has been in storage ever since. We have now installed it at the Stockyard Hill access to the Ninety Mile Beach, It has been very gratifying to see the significant number of people who are now able to get down onto the beach proper, including some wheelchair bound fishermen.

All-abilities pathway to the surf beach

Members recently cleared over 3 tonne of sand off the access pathway at Stockyard Hill enabling many more people to make their way down to the beach, including this gentleman who said it was the first time in many years that he had been able to take a close-up view of the ocean. We are about to extend the retaining walls further down the sides of the path to prevent wind-blown sand from encroaching onto the path, with special thanks to Gippsland Treated Pine (Morwell) who have donated all of the required timber. We are very grateful for their support.
