The Environment

The beautiful diversity of Hardwicke Bay's natural environment is a blend of low sand dunes, sweeping sandy beaches and ancient intertidal reefs edged by a changeable sea.

People are being drawn in high numbers to the Bay, but there are signs the some of the things we have come to take for granted such as clean beaches, clear water and a wide variety of coast marine life, are under threat.

While the coast and sea are two different environments, neither could exist alone and each are areas of rich biodiversity which fit into a fragile jigsaw puzzle.

If one piece goes missing the complete picture cannot be restored. What we do in this environment will impact on the future of our Bay.
