Tallebudgera and Currumbin Creek 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 $980,000 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 28 years approximately 650,000 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 30,000 cubic metres of sand from the creek mouth.

The Currumbin Creek works are scheduled to finish by December 2018.

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