Stairs open at Coogee Maritime Trail

The new stairs at Coogee Beach provide access over the limestone breakwater to the dive trail which features more than 30 underwater sculptures for snorkel and scuba divers to explore.
Made from fibre reinforced plastic, the stairs are designed to require minimal maintenance as they withstand the harsh marine environment and erosion that occurs in this area, while also providing safe public access to the beach, and protecting the integrity of the breakwater.
Environment Manager Chris Beaton said according to the stair manufacturer, it was a world first that fibre reinforced plastic has been used to span such a large distance up and over a breakwater without additional supports.
The 230m long Coogee Maritime Trail centres around the historic Omeo shipwreck, lodged in shallow water 25m off Coogee Beach since 1905.
The 1858-built Omeo is home to some spectacular sea life and the fibre reinforced concrete reef modules are encouraging more marine species to call it home.
