Surfers Paradise riverside set for redevelopment

THE Surfers Paradise riverside is set to be redeveloped under a new plan put forward by the Gold Coast Waterways Authority and City of Gold Coast Council.

The Masterplan will guide future stages of development along the river and foreshore between Appel Park and Lionel Perry Park, establishing a vision to transform the area.

Plans to redevelop the Surfers Paradise riverside.


$1million has been allocated to begin implementation of the Masterplan, with community input into the plan strongly encouraged.

City of Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate said the project marks a new beginning for Surfers’ lesser known waterfront.

“The time has come to maximise the enormous potential of the riverside, providing better access and facilities for both locals and visitors to enjoy the river as an integral part of Surfers Paradise,” he said.

“Together with Gold Coast Waterways Authority, we’re making a significant investment to create an improved waterfront destination for social, outdoor and cultural activities.”

Have your say in the online consultation which starts on Saturday 8 November and runs until 22 November.
