Erosion Destroying Beach

At the turn of the century the Torquay Reserves Committee had many issues to face, but none worse than loosing the sand on the most popular family beach we now call Cosy Corner, back then it was sometimes referred to as Scammell Bay.
To resolve the issue Groynes and improvements to the sea wall were underway to stop erosion at Cosy Corner or Scammell Bay as it was sometimes referred to in the Geelong Advertiser.
