Giving Gold Coast locals the opportunity to help care for their coastal environment

BeachCare is a coastal community engagement initiative facilitated by Griffith Centre for Coastal Management in partnership with the City of Gold Coast.

The program provides an opportunity for community members to help care for their local coastal environments through the planting of native dune species, weed removal and litter collection and auditing.

BEACHCARE AIMS

The BeachCare program works to conserve the city’s biodiversity and protect coastal vegetation on public land. More importantly, the program empowers communities with skills, experience and information. This supports locals to respond independently and create sustainable community values for the coast through increasing awareness and caring for our Gold Coast dunes and their fragile ecosystem.

BeachCare sites

We have more than 10 dedicated BeachCare sites spanning the Gold Coast’s vast shoreline, from Currumbin in the south to Paradise Point in the north. See our list of sites to find your closest point and get involved!
