Dredged sand will be placed onto the adjacent beach in Hog Bay.

“Weather could not have been better, and here’s hoping it stays that way for the next few weeks. Certainly a busy time for tourism on KI, so all the more important keep ferry operations unimpeded,” said Simon Spencer, the Projects and Environmental Manager at Maritime Constructions.

Kangaroo Island lies off the mainland of South Australia, southwest of Adelaide.
