Boambee / Newports Estuary

Boambee Creek

The Boambee/Newports Estuary has a roughly rectangular shape catchment area of approximately 49 km2. It extends about 8 km from the coast with a coastal floodplain of approximately 3 km wide. It consists of three main tributaries: the largest being Newports Creek in the north; Boambee Creek is next largest and drains the middle portion of the catchment; and Cordwells Creek the smaller of the catchments drains the south. The Boambee/Newports Estuary is permanently open to the ocean and has no artificial entrance training works, as it is naturally trained by Boambee Headland on the southern side.

Coffs Harbour City Council (CHCC) recognises the need to minimise human impacts on the estuarine environment of Boambee/Newports Estuary and to ensure that the natural resources of the estuary are managed to meet both the present and future needs.
