Coastal Beach Nourishment – Whitsunday Regional Council

Hillery Group was engaged to reinstate beaches in Bowen which were damaged by Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie in March 2017.

The contract included sand replenishment for Grays Bay and Queens Beach which comprised of screening sand at the Don River, cartage to the appropriate locations and placement via dump trucks, loader, and excavator.

As well as the sand replenishment, Hillery Group was required to supply, fill and place Geofabric Revetment bags at Pillow Beach which were needed to replace existing damaged bags.

Having smoko at the beach every day wasn’t the only perk of the project, we also had a high quality, much more pleasant beach to hand back over to the public for their enjoyment at completion.
