Palm Beach Shoreline Project

By Jared Hodge

Palm Beach is a beautiful 3.8 kilometre stretch of sandy beach on the southern Gold Coast, nestled between Currumbin and Tallebudgera Creeks. It is an important part of the Gold Coast’s iconic coastline, however it is more susceptible to serious beach erosion than other Gold Coast foreshores.

As part of its Ocean Beaches Strategy, the City of Gold Coast is now developing the Palm Beach Shoreline Project – a holistic plan to provide a sustainable solution for the ongoing protection of the foreshore at Palm Beach. The project aims to:

  • reduce the vulnerability of the beach and beachfront development to storm damage
  • protect, and if practical, enhance the beach amenity for the community
  • provide a sustainable, cost effective and integrated solution
  • avoid or mitigate adverse environmental and social impacts.

This initiative will ensure the shoreline continues to be the social and economic centrepiece of Palm Beach.
