We would like your feedback on our draft management plan for the coastal reserve at Frog Rock, Cape Gloucester.

The Frog Rock reserve covers approximately 8.5ha on the western side of Cape Gloucester, with important ecological qualities such as endangered littoral rainforest. The area is also a popular spot for social and recreational activities for both residents and visitors.

In recent years, there has been an increase in tourists and day visitors using the coastal reserve and this has increased the impacts to the area. Some of these impacts include litter, erosion, damage to vegetation, illegal camping and damage to turtle nesting habitats.


What's in the management plan?

The purpose of the Frog Rock Reserve Management Plan is to:

  • Better manage visitation to the reserve;
  • Identify areas of the reserve to rehabilitate to restore the littoral rainforest vegetation;
  • Identify areas for future recreation; and
  • Plan for improved protection of the site’s cultural heritage.


Proposed Activities

The management plan proposes a series of actions to address these issues, such as:

  • Providing dedicated carparks;
  • Reducing vehicle access by installing bollards;
  • Revegetation activities;
  • Informative signage about regulations;
  • Informative signage about habitat to educate tourists and day visitors.


Have Your Say

Please view the management plan and complete the short survey below to have your say. You are also able to leave a public comment in the Feedback tab.

Consultation will be open between Tuesday 23 February and 5pm, Sunday 21 March 2021.

WRC officers will be at the Gloucester Sport & Recreation Association on Saturday 6 March 2021, between 10am – 2pm.
