Sorrento: Eastern Sister Pathway and Rock Seawall


Council, at its 12 September 2016 meeting, awarded a contract ($1.56 million) to South East Services to construct a coastal pathway and seawall at the Eastern Sister Headland, Sorrento.

This pathway provides coastal access between Camerons Bight Beach and Sullivan Bay.  A 300 metre long rock revetment topped with a 2 metre wide crushed rock pathway was constructed. It also provides protection of the headland cliffs through provision of a sloping face to absorb the energy of incoming waves during storm events.

The pathway finished level is approximately 2 metres above the Mean Sea Level elevation for Port Phillip and takes into account predicted sea level rise to 2070 resulting from climate change.
