The City invests heavily in managing and caring for our coastline, working with our partners and the community to keep our beaches and coastal environments healthy and protected.
We work all year round to manage, maintain and protect our precious Gold Coast.
Our ongoing projects include the maintenance and construction of seawalls, sand pumping and dredging, landscaping and coastline infrastructure works.
We've constructed a unique artificial reef to buffer our beach from erosion and generate waves.
