Dune Management

Dunes are an important part of beach management on the Gold Coast, providing a buffer of sand for beach erosion and protecting the beach’s natural ecosystem. To protect our coastal dune areas, we fence off primary dune vegetation in some areas to prevent trampling and restore coastal dune areas following disturbance such as seawall construction.

Working in partnership with Griffith Centre for Coastal Management we are developing ways to create community understanding of natural coastal processes and management strategies for the local beaches.
