Our Resilient Coast. Our Future.

We're continuing the journey to develop 'Our Resilient Coast. Our Future.', a long-term strategy to help manage the impacts of coastal hazards. Coastal hazards include erosion of our beaches, and short or long-term seawater inundation of land along the coastline.

We aim to better understand coastal hazards, and reduce impacts on our coast and communities. We also hope to enhance the resilience of our coastline over time.


The process used to develop the 'Our Resilient Coast. Our Future.' strategy may take up to 24 months. This allows enough time to:

  • undertake detailed studies
  • hold a range of conversations with you, our community, and
  • incorporate your values and ideas into the strategy.

The development of this strategy is a key action in our Environment and Liveability Strategy.

The QCoast2100 Program

'Our Resilient Coast. Our Future.' is funded by the State Government QCoast2100 program. The strategy will follow the QCoast2100 Minimum Standards and Guidelines. Council is working with Alluvium, NCE, JBP and other local experts and project partners to deliver this work.

More than 30 coastal councils in Queensland are developing strategies to manage coastal hazards. Similar work is also ongoing across Australia and overseas.
