Site monitoring for Gold Coast Dive Attractions
The Gold Coast is one of Australia’s most popular holiday destinations. To remain competitive in an increasingly crowded marketplace, the destination needs new and innovative products developed. Responding to this need, Gold Coast Tourism commissioned a Gold Coast Dive Attraction Scoping and Operational Study. In collaboration with International Coastal Management Pty Ltd, Griffith Centre for Coastal Management was involved in monitoring two prospective sites: one at the Gold Coast Seaway and the other at Tugun. Our responsibilities included the provision of instrumentation for oceanographic data collection, analysis of data and preparation of reports.
