Breakout Creek has been steadily transformed from an artificial channel into a more natural and healthy river system. The Stage 3 redevelopment area stretches from Tapleys Hill Road to the sea, a total of 1.5 kilometres of river and banks.

Stage 3 has seen the creation of wetlands to capture and clean stormwater from adjacent residential catchments prior to discharge to the river, removal of weeds, planting of more than 215,000 new native plants and creation of habitat for a range of aquatic and terrestrial fauna. The redevelopment has also re-opened areas once fenced off, with new opportunities for people to enjoy trails, picnic areas, viewing decks and art.

The site tour will provide attendees with an overview of the recently completed works and insight into key design features and considerations.

Attendees should be prepared for walking a portion of the site and the forecast weather conditions.

Parking: Available within the Apex Park Community Centre.  Access to the site will be via the recently completed staircase connecting Apex Park to Breakout Creek. 

Please arrive in time for a 4:30pm sharp kick off. 

The AGM will follow at the Beachside Restaurant (5 West Beach Road, West Beach), with drinks and nibbles provided. We hope you can join us to welcome in the new year.
