Tayla, Tiffany, Michael and Jackson Lamb at the beach, where they say 4WDs are a risk.

Among those enjoying the closest formal beach access in Alkimos was Tiffany Lamb, who moved into the suburb two years ago with her husband, Michael and two children, Tayla (12) and Jackson (11).

‘There was a rough limestone track there beforehand,’ Mrs Lamb said.

‘We used to take the dogs down there for a walk and watch the sunset.’

Although the family enjoy he beach, Mrs Lamb said she worried about her children’s safety as four-wheel-drives drove down Shorehaven Boulevard and on to the dunes.

‘It’s a bit scary for families,’ she said.

‘I don’t think young guys are aware that families use that road.

‘Before the road was put in, they didn’t even really care.

‘If you wanted to walk down the sand to get to the beach, it was almost a game of chicken.

Mrs Lamb said she drove along Marmion Avenue daily and had seen 4WDs push over the fences around development sites.

‘I have noticed lately that there have been a few more rangers and things like that parked down at the beach,’ she said.
