Clean and Healthy Beaches
Sparkling beaches and waterways are synonymous with the Gold Coast. To ensure our beaches and foreshores retain their sparkle, we invest in a range of cleaning and management services.
Thirty six (36) kilometres of ocean beaches on the mainland are swept between midnight and sunrise on every day of the year and we have six crews of two people who patrol the 860 kilometres of tidal waterways removing over 1000 tonnes per year of floating debris.
Australia's cleanest beaches
Together with our community partners, we participate in the Keep Australia Beautiful Council's Clean Beach Challenge.
Currumbin Beach has been announced the winner for 2013. This year is the second time in the last three years that a southern Gold Coast beach has won the title of Australia's cleanest beach, being taken by Tallebudgera in 2011. Surfers Paradise took out the overall award for 2005 and Palm Beach is the only place to have won the overall award twice (in 1999 and 2000).
