A Best Practice Management Guide for Changing Coastlines

  Tasmanian Coastal Works Manual   (19Mb)​

The manual is a comprehensive tool for coastal land managers such as parks and reserves managers and local council works crews. 

The manual aims to 
  • increase knowledge and awareness on a wide range of coastal land management issues to ensure that future work undertaken on fragile coastal areas will have minimal impact on environmental values 
  • encourage more consistent use of best practice management techniques
  • improve the resilience of Tasmania's coastline to sustain future effects of climate change and sea level rise

Manual topics cover the broad spectrum of coastal land management activities and include 
  • Aboriginal heritage management
  • vegetation management
  • maintenance of facilities
  • coastal roads
  • access ways and tracks
  • climate change and sea level rise adaptation and response
  • working with the community
  • coastal processes and geomorphology
  • protection of wildlife
