Curl Curl Lagoon Friends Inc.

There was a time when Curl Curl Lagoon was a pristine waterway with a sandy bottom, clean beaches, large fish and a healthy natural environment. It would flush to the ocean from time to time but never completely empty. That was only about fifty years ago. In a few short decades of urban development, we humans managed to poison the water, destroy the surrounding vegetation and habitats and silt up the stream.

The final insult came in the late 1970s when there were proposals ranging from filling in the whole creek and running it through pipes – to piping in sea water to flush the lagoon sludge out onto the beach. So was born the Curl Curl Lagoon Committee, which became Curl Curl Lagoon Friends in 1998.

Protecting native flora and fauna by providing or preserving natural habitats has always been a major part of their work. Their biggest project is still going on – the Curl Curl Lagoon rehabilitation project.
