What's happening at Dixon's Reef?

Dixon's Reef (near the end of Karingal Court, Taroona) is one of two sites in Tasmania  selected for the Reef Builder Project.

Reef Builder is a partnership between the Australian Government and The Nature Conservancy, to restore shellfish reef habitat in at least 11 coastal communities around Australia. NRM South is leading the delivery of Reef Builder in partnership with The Nature Conservancy in south east Tasmania. We will restore two hectares of native flat oyster reef at two sites in the Derwent Estuary and D’Entrecasteaux Channel.
