The Gold Coast is home to more than 50km of coastline, putting it on the map as host to some of Australia’s best and most beautiful beaches.
The BeachCare program was established to conserve the Gold Coast’s biodiversity, protect our coastal vegetation and keep our beaches tidy.
The program gives communities the skills, experience and information to respond independently and create positive community values for the coast by increasing awareness about the issues and how to care for our dunes and their fragile ecosystem.
Palm Beach’s 3km of coastline has been crowned Queensland’s cleanest beach three times in previous years, largely due to the hard work and management of this spectacular stretch of coast.
BeachCare encourage and welcome new volunteers to get involved in their volunteer sessions to help care for their local coastal environments through the planting of native dune species, weed removal and litter collection and auditing.
If you are interested in contributing to a healthy beach system and keeping our backyard beautiful, Palm Beach BeachCare’s next event will be their ‘End of Year’ session, held from 9:00 – 11:00am on Saturday 9 December at Lacey’s Lane. Tallebudgera will also host a BeachCare session on the same day from 1:30 – 3:30pm at the beach end of Tallebudgera Drive at Lifeguard Tower 16.
The only requirements are to bring a hat, drinking water, sun smart clothing, enclosed shoes and a positive attitude.
