Newcastle University 1997-2002 three specialist study students carried out their studies on Budgewoi Beach. These studies covered a range of monitoring activities designed to enhance an understanding of coastal restoration works being carried out by BBDC.
Marine Biology students from Newcastle University, Ourimba Campus have since 2008 annually monitored rehabilitated foredune profiles and vegetation to compare with non-rehabilitated foredune profiles. This important data has demonstrated an increased biodiversity in rehabilitated coastal dune systems at Budgewoi beach.
