Who We Are

Budgewoi Beach Dunecare commenced Coastal rehabilitation works along Budgewoi Beach in 1995 in collaboration with National Parks and Wildlife Service and 12 months later with Wyong Shire Council. Budgewoi Beach Dunecare has been instrumental in successfully implementing innovative restoration techniques, some of which are documented in the Coastal Dune Management Manual adopted by Wyong Shire Council in 2006.   

Since its inception a small group of volunteers have transformed 2km of Budgewoi Coastline from a degraded weed infested, sand mined wasteland into a balanced coastal ecosystem. Access-ways and raised walkways allow protection and appreciation of the coastal wetlands. Restored ecologically endangered communities allow an understanding of the need for biodiversity conservation.
