Summer beach boost tradition complete

The annual Tallebudgera and Currumbin Creek dredging works are now complete.

The $980,000 dredging campaign is conducted for the purpose of sand nourishment at adjacent beaches and is an integral part of the City's efforts to maintain and replenish sand on our beaches ready for summer. In 2018, approximately 32,000 cubic metres of sand was dredged from Tallebudgera Creek and placed on the southern end of Burleigh Beach, while almost 32,000 cubic metres was also dredged from near the mouth of Currumbin Creek and placed on the southern end of Palm Beach.

The next annual dredging program is scheduled to commence in July 2019.
