Kingscliff Foreshore Revitalisation


Site preparation has begun for the Kingscliff Foreshore Revitalisation, a three-stage $21.8 million project being undertaken by Council to protect and enhance facilities along the Kingscliff CBD coastline.

  • Stage 1 will construct a permanent sea wall to protect the Cudgen Headland Surf Life Saving Club, Kingscliff Beach Holiday Park and Kingscliff Beach Bowls Club from erosion caused by storm events and projected sea level rises
  • Stage 2 will refurbish and modernise the facilities and services at Kingscliff Beach Holiday Park, to better meet the demands of the visitors to the town, including a greater emphasis on cabin accommodation.
  • Stage 3 will create a Kingscliff Central Park, a community hub linking the Kingscliff central business district with the beach by providing oceans views from CBD businesses on Marine Park and establishing paths for improved beach access.

    A new building for the Visitor Information Centre will open in Central Park next week.

    VIC volunteers will be housed in the temporary building while the Community Hall is upgraded as part of the revitalisation project, and will be able to provide details and updates on the project’s progress.

    Security fencing along the south-west corner of Central Park was moved back towards the beach today, to allow pedestrian access away from the road and carpark. It will be moved back further in coming weeks, once paving around the cenotaph is completed.

    The fence has been scheduled to be moved earlier this month but was postponed by a rescheduling of work.

  • WATCH - INSIGHTS INTO KINGSCLIFF FORESHORE PROJECT

    The $21-million Kingscliff Foreshore Revitalisation is taking shape with seawall construction advancing and landscaping work underway for the new Central Park.

    During Local Government Week, Project Manger Stewart Brawley took groups of community members on 'behind the scenes' tours of the site. The tours drew so much interest that an additional session was needed.

  • Pandanus to be moved

    Pandanus low res

    A pandanus located immediately south of Cudgen Headland Surf Life Saving Club will be relocated to the new Kingscliff Central Park as part of its early landscaping for the Kingscliff Foreshore Revitalisation.

    The mature tree is extremely close to the surf club building and would need to be removed when the club undertakes a planned facility upgrade of the facility. Access to transport lifesaving equipment to and from the beach would then be via land currently occupied by the pandanus.

    The club building and surrounding paths is also restricting the tree’s growth.

    The club building and surrounding paths is also restricting the tree’s growth.

    ”The works currently being undertaken in the new Central Park provide a great opportunity to transplant the tree now and relocate directly into a new position within the park,” Kingscliff Foreshore Revitalisation Project Manager Stewart Brawley said.

    The tree is expected to be moved during the next week or two.

    Be sure to include your first name with the quote, so that can be part of the paver engraving.
