The stream passage was prepared in 1978 with a solitary rock breakwater, and a stone crotch made halfway between the waterway passageway and headland in 1983.

Disintegration of Noosa Main Beach has been a continuous issue, with chronicled records demonstrating that tempest occasions have brought on reduction of the shoreline for whatever length of time that verifiable records have been kept up. Preceding the mid 1960s however, the shoreline and waterway framework basically stayed in a condition of element balance. The sand hill could suit storm reduction and the shoreline appeared to react with no real concern. In any case, extensive scale advancement saw in the mid 1960s prompted adjustment of the shoreline framework and brought about the development of the defensive rock seawall, preparing of the stream passageway and development of the stone crotch.

It is currently recommended that sustenance sand be acquired from the “dynamic” zone comprising of tidal deltas and deltas inside the waterway passageway.

Various answers for the shoreline disintegration issue have been explored, including expansion of the stone crotch, realignment of the seawall and development of a counterfeit reef. Every one of these alternatives have been rejected for an assortment of reasons and support has proceeded with a specific end goal to keep up a useable shoreline.
