Report a problem - Graffiti

report graffiti

Graffiti is a crime of wilful damage under the Queensland Criminal Code Act 1899 (s469). City of Gold Coast supports a ‘rapid removal’ policy for graffiti, where offensive graffiti is given priority and is usually removed within one working day.

If you notice any offensive graffiti, please call us on 07 5667 5974 to have it removed as soon as possible.

City maintenance officers can remove graffiti from structures on public land. The City also offers a free service to remove graffiti from private property, provided that the damage is accessible from public land (e.g. boundary fences).

As of 1 July 2010, the City no longer requires written consent of property owners prior to removing publicly visible graffiti. This is in accordance with State Government legislation under the Summary Offences Act 2005, and means that City officers can remove graffiti more quickly for our community. If we do happen to remove graffiti on your property as a part of this service, our team will leave you a notice to let you know.

Visit our Graffiti removal page for more information on how to remove graffiti from your property, including where to obtain our free graffiti removal kits.
