Artist's Description

this beautiful part of kingscliff beach is very quickly disappearing..
approximately 2 years ago a low off the coast caused extensive damage to the dunes in this area.
the beach has recovered on & off , but 2011 has not been kind .

since January we have seen so much damage here in this corner – we have lost the trees & dunes completely. the road around the park , on the foreshore has gone too!
the rock wall has been placed here in front of the dunes to try to hold it . this rock wall is over my head!!

there is a rock platform that is now exposed at low tide. you can see the platform in the dark shades ..some people say the platform was exposed over 60 years ago..

it is amazing how it has changed in only a coulpe of weeks.

if you look at a larger view you can just see the sandbag walls that are protecting the surfclub…

I have seen erosion here before …but never like this……
