Main Beach Nambucca Heads Seawall


Council has liaised with Nambucca Heads Surf Lifesaving Club (SLSC) regarding the continued closure of Main Beach through the September/October 2022 NSW school holidays.  This will allow Council to progress works currently underway at the Seawall Coastal Protection Upgrade Project, and provide the best opportunity to complete the bleacher wall adjacent to the Surf Club building prior to the Christmas school holidays.  Weather forecasts have predicted above normal rainfall in November, however it is expected that this stage of the project will be completed by the Christmas school holidays allowing the Main Beach precinct to open.

Due to the closure of Main Beach the SLSC will instead patrol Swimming Creek with temporary amenities provided and maintained by Council during patrol hours for the duration of the holiday period.

Bowraville Off-River Water Storage Project

The Nambucca Shire water supply is a single source supply drawn from bores sunk into alluvial deposits adjacent to the Nambucca River upstream of the town of Bowraville. Studies have confirmed that the aquifer has limited storage capacity and cannot be expected to meet current and future water supply demands during periods of drought. During the drought of 2002 two of the eight bores began to run dry and it was estimated that there was between 30 to 60 days supply of water available when the drought broke.

Nambucca Heads Sewerage Augmentation

Council engaged the NSW Public Works (NSW Water Solutions) to prepare a concept design for an upgrade of the works along with a REF (Review of Environmental Factors) to investigate the likely social and environmental impacts of the proposal.
