GOOD NEWS! Following a recent recommendation by the Western Australian Planning Commission, Planning Minister Rita Saffioti approved an amendment on 2nd December to remove the potential for developing a marina at Point Grey. This was in response to concerns about the suitability of the site due to potential long-term environmental impacts, and uncertainty about ongoing maintenance and upkeep.

Thank you to everyone who signed the petition, wrote letters, attended council meetings and educated the public and the decision makers.
September 2020: Our beautiful Peel-Harvey Estuary is a very special place. It is the lifeblood of the Mandurah and Murray communities. It’s also the reason that people live in and visit this fabulous area.
Unfortunately the estuary is under serious threat from a planned development that could carve a 2.5km channel from the Dawesville Cut to a proposed marina at Point Grey.
If this were to go ahead, the health of the estuary would be threatened, wildlife would suffer, commercial and recreational fishing would be compromised, and tourism would go into decline.
