New Soldiers Point revetment wall protects coastline and improves accessibility

Port Stephen

The coastline of Soldiers Point is now in better shape thanks to a new rock revetment wall and pathway to stabilise the area and provide safer connections.

Port Stephens Council funded the works along with the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Fund.

Port Stephens Mayor Ryan Palmer says it’s a great improvement to the area.

“Soldiers Point is a popular destination for locals and visitors — these works protect and conserve our coastline so that we can continue to enjoy this area for generations to come.

“The rock revetment wall stabilises the area to reduce coastal erosion while the pathway improves connections between the car park, boat ramp and marina — making the area more accessible.

Mayor Palmer says the works took into consideration the cultural significance of the site.
