Work to the Golden Beach foreshore is now underway as part of the Bribie Island breakthrough action plan.  The work will be done in stages and 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-containing material found on some sections of the TS Onslow site.

The work will be done in stages, including:

  • Seawall and foreshore works – Esplanade (between Jellicoe and Nelson Streets)
  • Foreshore and seawall 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 now underway and is scheduled to be completed in August 2024, weather and site conditions permitting.

We are progressing section one using temporary metal sheet piles to create a protected building area whilst the rock wall is constructed behind. 

The excavations will then be gradually backfilled using appropriate filter rock and gravel to aid drainage. The new concrete footpath will then be laid on top of the rock wall to the new levels.

Installing the new beach access stairs and reinstating the parkland will complete the project as the final stages.

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

  • reconstructing and raising approximately 80 linear metres of the existing seawall using grouted rock
  • installing tiles to create a ‘living seawall’ with habitat for sea creatures
  • a new section of concrete footpath and matching timber and metal 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 seawall reconstruction - TS Onslow to Nelson Street, Golden Beach

Sunshine Coast Council is partnering with the Queensland Government to reconstruct the existing seawall to protect the foreshore between Nelson Street and the TS Onslow Naval Cadets site in Southern Golden Beach.

The existing seawall, structures and foreshore were damaged in the extraordinary weather events of 2021 and 2022.

The damaged boat ramp will be rebuilt at the Navy Cadets site and the surrounding parklands, landscaping and pathways restored from Onslow Street to Jellicoe Street along the Esplanade.

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

We are progressing the concept design with the design team and preparing submissions for statutory authority approvals. It is a complex project which requires careful consideration of the potential future impacts of the tidal breakthrough at Bribie Island and in the Pumicestone Passage.

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

This project will also address the uncontrolled fill and asbestos-containing material found on some sections of the site after a number of items were washed up 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 temporary 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.
