QUINNS BEACH, WANNEROO WA
The Quinns Beach Swimming Enclosure - the latest WA State Government funded shark barrier - is an eco-friendly 'Aquarius Barrier'. The enclosure extends 85m offshore and 300m along the beach and is located on the north side of the Quinns-Mindarie SLSC and Portofino's Restaurant. The swimming enclosure will remain installed throughout all seasons for a period of 5 years.
Like all of Global Marine Enclosures' products, the Aquarius Barrier is an eco-friendly alternative to shark nets and is designed to not entrap marine life. In fact, no bycatch has ever been recorded in any of our enclosures.
Installation was fully completed on the 30th of January 2017. The Quinns Beach shark barrier was officially opened by the WA Premier, the Hon. Colin Barnett MLA, alongside the City of Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts.
