Welcome to the Douglas Shire CoastSnap Network!

Welcome to the Douglas Shire CoastSnap community beach monitoring network. We have installed five CoastSnap beach monitoring stations in Douglas Shire to allow the community to record changes to our precious coastline. These stations are located at Cow Bay, Newell Beach, Cooya Beach, Wonga Beach and Four Mile Beach.

Participating in this program is a snap - all you need to do is download the CoastSnap App (available from Apple and Android App Stores) and visit one of these five stations. The unique camera cradles are specifically designed to control the position of your photo. As more and more photos are taken, your snaps provide a powerful record to enable researchers to underand how our coastline is changing due to processes such as cyclones and storm surge, sea level rise  and human factors. Simply put your smartphone in the camera cradle and take a snap, it's that easy!

Whats more, your snaps form part of the global network of CoastSnap stations with over 100 stations worldwide. We thank the community for their involvement and happy (coast)snapping!
