The Tennyson Dunes are the last standing remnant dune on the Adelaide Metropolitan coastline. They are unique for their coastal plants, reptiles and migratory birds. These dunes have a close relationship with the first peoples (Kaurna) and are estimated to be over 6,000 years old.

In 2013, the Tennyson Dunes Group won the Premier’s Natural Resources Management (NRM) Community Engagement Award, received for outstanding contribution to the sustainable management of South Australia’s natural resources in the category of Community Engagement. Thanks to WACRA President Jim Douglas for the nomination and fellow community groups in the area for their recognition.
