This project introduces fencing, gates and bollards to unallocated state land adjacent the Great Sandy Strait Ramsar site for access by authorised vehicles only. A reduction of vehicle access in the area benefits the environment and the condition of the fire control lines but doesn't restrict direct public access to the creek.


  • Reduced erosion and damage to the wetlands by the impact of off-road vehicles on the foreshore of Crab Creek
  • shorebird protection.
