The beach code: protect the native plants that hold dunes together by keeping to the tracks.

Europeans planted exotic marram grass because cattle could eat it as they were driven along the beach before there were roads. Marram doesn’t hold dunes. Spinifex and pīngao do.


Taped off dunes and a sign asking people to look after the native plants that protect dunes from erosion by keeping to the tracks.
