Golden Beach foreshore works

Approximately 300m of seawall, a boat ramp, a section of the coastal footpath and beach access will be upgraded along the Golden Beach foreshore over the coming years.

Work to the Golden Beach foreshore will be underway soon as part of the Bribie Island breakthrough action plan.  It includes upgrading approximately 300m of seawall, raising a section of the coastal pathway and repairing a beach access. It’ll also include steps to contain the asbestos at the TS Onslow site.

The work will be done in stages, including:

  • Seawall and foreshore works – Esplanade (between Jellicoe and Nelson Streets)
  • Foreshore and revetment wall reconstruction – TS Onslow to Nelson Street.

Seawall and foreshore works - Esplanade, Golden Beach

A degraded section of the seawall between Jellicoe and Nelson Streets is being rebuilt.

This work is scheduled to take place from late April to mid-July 2024, weather and site conditions permitting.

The project will help protect the parkland and footpath from damage caused by storm surges, high tides and erosion. It will include:

  • reconstructing and raising approximately 80 metres of the existing seawall using grouted rock
  • installing tiles to create a ‘living seawall’ with habitat for sea creatures
  • a new section of footpath and balustrade, reinstating the barbecue shelter, benches and binoculars
  • reinstating the parkland and planting.

The Golden Beach seawall and foreshore project is being completed with the support of the Queensland Government’s LGAQ QCoast2100 Program in association with Sunshine Coast Council.

Foreshore and revetment wall reconstruction - TS Onslow to Nelson Street, Golden Beach

Sunshine Coast Council is partnering with the Queensland Government to rebuild the existing revetment wall between Nelson Street and the TS Onslow Naval Cadets site in Southern Golden Beach.

The existing revetment wall was damaged in the extraordinary weather events of 2021 and 2022.

We will also rebuild the damaged boat ramp and restore the surrounding parklands, landscaping and pathways at the TS Onslow site.

This will provide better access to the water and protect the valuable park, coastal pathway and road near the revetment wall from coastal hazards.

This is currently in the planning and design phase. It is a complex project which requires careful consideration of the potential future impacts of the tidal breakthrough at Bribie Island in the Pumicestone Passage.

We expect to start construction early 2025 and complete works by mid-2025, depending on weather, site conditions and contractor availability.

This project will also address the asbestos contaminated material on site. We will make the TS Onslow Australian Navy Cadets site safe again after material containing asbestos and other hazardous waste, including glass and uncontrolled fill, were exposed at the eastern end of Onslow Street.

The TS Onslow site is owned by the Queensland Government and leased by the Navy Cadets. Sunshine Coast Council will work with both parties to do the repair work.

The fence at the TS Onslow site will remain in place based on Queensland Government advice and we will continue to monitor the area for signs of asbestos.
