    Located between Nullaki Peninsula and West Cape Howe National Park, Lowlands Coastal Reserve is part of a near continuous strip of vegetation that stretches along the South Coast.

    Vegetation within the reserve is in excellent condition, and supports a diverse range of native flora and fauna.

    The reserve contains popular 4-wheel-driving tracks that need regular maintenance to provide access and to deter drivers from going off-track, damaging surrounding vegetation.

    This project aims to stabilise a popular track known as 'The Deeps' and install signage advising visitors of appropriate 4-wheel-driving techniques to protect the environment from further damage.

    Investment: $ 26 000
    Delivery organisation: City of Albany
    Project duration: February 2013 - December 2013
    Location: Lowlands Coastal Reserve, 35 km west of Albany
