Tallebudgera and Currumbin Creeks dredging

Latest news

Summer beach boost tradition underway.

The annual Tallebudgera Creek dredging is now complete and the dredge has begun works at Currumbin Creek.

This program has many benefits, including improved creek water quality and beach nourishment on Burleigh Beach.

The $945,000 dredging campaign is an integral part of the City's efforts to maintain and replenish sand on our beaches ready for summer.

Over the last 26 years approximately 600,000 cubic metres has been dredged from Tallebudgera Creek and pumped onto southern Burleigh Beach in a pre-summer practice. At the completion of the Tallebudgera Creek campaign, the dredge will move onto Currumbin Creek to renourish southern Palm Beach with approximately 40,000 cubic metres of sand from the creek mouth.

These works also compliment this year's larger scale Gold Coast Beach Nourishment Project which worked to nourish different areas of the city's vulnerable coastline.

The Currumbin Creek works are scheduled to finish by December 2017.

Sand replenishment at our beaches is an important part of our coastal protection works.
