Australian beach life under threat

Climate change fuelling erosion and threatening iconic coastline.



    For many Australians the beach is an important focus of daily life and around 70 per cent of the country's population lives on or near the coast.

    But rapid coastal erosion is threatening some of the country's most iconic beaches.

    Environmentalists say Australia's coast is becoming increasingly vulnerable as climate change brings higher tides and flooding.
