A surveillance tower strategy was initiated in 1989 for the Gold Coast's long stretches of ocean beaches.

City of Gold Coast currently operates 39 specially designed towers, which are numbered and strategically placed to ensure maximum safety for beach-goers.

An extensive communications network (via an exclusive two-way radio channel) links the towers, vehicles and powercraft with the following partners:

  • Queensland Ambulance Service
