The Beresford shoreline, Australia, is subject to a complex interaction of coastal processes and associated erosion. In support of the design of a coastal protection scheme a SWASH model has been set up capable of accounting for all the complex processes at hand. The model has successfully been validated against measured wave and current conditions. In the design process the validated SWASH model proved to be a valuable tool to assess the impact of various coastal protection schemes like
