Learning about beaches

The City is home to an amazing coastline stretching for 17kms between Marmion and Burns Beach including sandy beaches, rocky cliffs, coastal vegetation and the marine environment.

A diversity of marine animals including migratory birds, whales and sea lions live in the waters of the Indian Ocean. Other wildlife like the Echidna, Quenda and many reptile species also occur in the nearby land environment adjacent to the shore. The dune environment within the City includes important vegetation ranging from Spinifex grasslands, to coastal shrublands and upper storey trees such as eucalypts.
