Proposed new beach access 249A at Oceanic Drive South, Wurtulla

The beach is an important part of our Sunshine Coast lifestyle.

Council regularly maintains or upgrades beach accesses to keep them in good condition so everyone can safely access the beach.

Designated beach accesses also help to protect the dunes, the plants and coastal foreshore areas from erosion and damage.

Through our regular inspection process, we’ve been monitoring the condition of an informal beach access track south of beach access 249 at Oceanic Drive South, Wurtulla.

We’ve been aware of this path for some time and use of the track is increasing. Over time this has, and will continue to, cause significant erosion and damage to the dunes.

Community Engagement

We’re proposing to formalise this informal track to turn it into a designated beach access track, with a viewing platform and stairs – and want to know what you think about the proposal.

We asked the community to review the proposed concept plan and let us know their view on the proposal through a survey which opened on Thursday 24 March and closed on Sunday 8 May 2022.

Council is currently reviewing the feedback and will advise the community of the outcome soon.
