Marine and Coastal Environment
Mosman has 24 kilometres of coastline including attractive beaches and tranquil bays rimmed by scenic sandstone and bushland. Excellent access, facilities and the calm waters of sheltered bays render Mosman a popular place for activities like boating, swimming, diving and fishing.
Mosman’s coastal and marine environment is home to numerous species, including various sea birds, sea grasses, rays, octopus, sea horses and several species of fish.
Introduced or exotic species that are not native to Australia may become established around Mosman and become marine pests affecting the environment and our enjoyment of the coast.
Thoughtful disposal and minimisation of waste results in a better environment for Mosman’s marine and terrestrial residents.
