History of Unique Location

Scientific evidence in the late 1980’s confirmed that the Peel Inlet and the Harvey Estuary were developing severe algal blooms, so the State Government decided to cut a channel to the Indian Ocean, allowing regular flushing of both waterways.

The result for the wider community was the creation of an outdoor and water sports mecca offering both open ocean and calm inland waterways, while golfers gained one of Australia’s most extraordinary locations at The Cut.
