Attrition: Attrition happens when waves smash rocks and pebbles on the shore into each other and they break and become smoother. This is happening on the bay at Cpae Schanck. The hard black rocks near the waterline are hitting by sea waves and then they clash to each other and the surface of each rock becomes smoother under the long process.
Abrasion: At Cape Schanck, abrasion happened at both wave-cut platform and the feet of cliff. When bits of rock and sand in wave grind down cliff surfaces like sandpaper, cliff has been eroded and this is how it works.
Hydraulic action: Hydraulic action is where waves are smashed into the crack and then the backwash where the water retreats over millions of years slowly erodes the rock particles and the cave is formed.

- Unsatisfactory & Costal management strategies
- At Cape Schanck, there is a sparse amount of vegetation on top of some headlands this is because human had invaded them.
- Although some wood along the fences had been repaired temporarily by wires after they had been broken, but there is still potentinal hazard.
Costal management strategies:
- Rubbish bins are placed in case people through their rubbish to the flora area.
- Fences are constructed along the walking lane to protect flora.
- Educational board about general warning is set at the front of the entry.
- There are some other variety types of signs are set at Cape Schank to ankowledge tourists.
- Fences are constructed also to restrict human movement and for their safety.
- Pathways are created for human to walk on.
- Chicken wires are set to help plants growing.
- Pathways and fences were built to regenerate the environment.
