Formatted Abstract/Summary

Erosion at Amity Point on North Stradbroke Island is related to the eastward migration of Rainbow Channel resulting from the re-alignment of South Passage to a North-South orientation. Available survey records, aerial photographs, and recent research document this change. Slumping of the channel banks occurs and erosion is greate.st where Rainbow Channel is closest to the shore. Rock groynes constructed since 1972, have interrupted the southward movement of beach sediment thereby increasing erosion.
