“Ledgends” at the Point

Beach lovers from near and far recently proved they have what it takes to both care for the coast and build amazing sand castles at Ledge Point.

Coinciding with the annual Ledge Point Sand Castle Building Competition, NACC’s Coastal & Marine Program team set-up their popular Appreciate Your Beach display to add a new dimension to the fun-filled day.

With support from local Coastcare “Ledgend” Jan Richards, visitors to NACC’s Coastal Community Trailer were entertained by the display of weird and wonderful ‘finds’ from beaches in and around Ledge Point.

NACC Coastal & Marine Project Manager Hamish Longbottom said it was great to see so many people out enjoying the beach and “not a single piece of litter in sight”.

“The NACC Coastal Community Trailer was buzzing with kids and adults discovering fun things about the local coastal and marine environment with a range of educational displays,” he said.

“We look forward to attending more of these events in future where we can engage large numbers of people who love the beach.”

NACC’s Appreciate Your Beach program is made possible by the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
