Dredging Helps in Winning Cleanest Beach Award

The Mayor of the Gold Coast, Tom Tate, has welcomed the announcement by Keep Queensland Beautiful that Burleigh Heads has been named Queensland’s Cleanest Beach 2015.

City of Gold Coast works year round to maintain and protect our beaches, investing almost $20 million this year on managing and protecting our coast and waterways. Our Ocean Beaches Strategy ensures coastal management is one of the City’s highest priorities,” the City said in its note.

An annual dredging program run by the City’s engineers helps to nourish Burleigh Heads beach by moving some 30,000 cubic meters of sand – the equivalent of 15 Olympic sized swimming pools – from nearby Tallebudgera Creek.

A firm favorite with both locals and visitors, the Burleigh coastal strip beat some of the most beautiful beaches in the state, in a decision which the judges said was made because of the high and innovative level of community involvement in taking care of the beach.
