St Clair Esplanade, Seawall and Ocean Beach

While the look of the St Clair seawall and the surrounding area has changed over the decades its importance has not - its protection and enhancement is seen as a priority.

St Clair Seawall work June 2014

St Clair beach front and the promenade behind have long been a focal point for recreational and social activities for Dunedin people and visitors alike. Equally important is the seawall’s critical role as part of the city’s southern coastal defence, along with the sand dunes at Ocean Beach.

While the look of the St Clair seawall and the surrounding area has changed over the decades its importance has not - its protection and enhancement is seen as a priority.

A period of successive south east storms in May 2013 eroded backfill from behind the wall leading to slumping along the promenade above. The damage acted as a stark reminder of the relentless forces at play on this foreshore and highlighted the role this wall plays in our community and the importance of ensuring its ongoing integrity.
