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.

  • Preparations for Kingscliff sea wall

    15 days ago
    Work in March will include the installation of a barrier between the ocean and dunes, to prepare for the start of construction of the sea wall and beach access steps in front of the Kingscliff Central Park site.

    An initial section of the sheet piling barrier will stretch from the northern boundary of the Cudgen Headland Surf Life Saving Club and extend north for approximately 80 metres.

    The barrier will protect the worksite from waves and tides during site preparations and construction.

    See the photo gallery for updated designs for the Central Park and Kingscliff Beach Holiday Park.

    Reviews of design, accessibility, holiday park occupancy rates and public input - including feedback during the Kingscliff Matters shopfront in Marine Parade from February to April - led to a handful of updates before tenders are put in place for a contractor to construct the project.

    Tenders are scheduled to close on 16 November and Council is working with a shortlist of contractors.


  • Updates to Central Park design

    5 months ago
    Central park layout reduced

    The removal of ramps for beach access and the retention of the existing Kingscliff Beach Holiday Park amenities building, to provide public toilet facilities, are among a handful of updates to the design for Kingscliff Central Park.

    Ramps have been removed from the design for the beach accesses because:

    • Investigations with other local government revealed the ramps would:
    1. be difficult to maintain
    2. significantly increase cost of wall’s construction
    3. create a weak point in erosion protection provided by the wall
    • An audit with Council’s Aged and Disability Officer and a representative from Council’s Access Committee determined that an... Continue reading

    The removal of ramps for beach access and the retention of the existing Kingscliff Beach Holiday Park amenities building, to provide public toilet facilities, are among a handful of updates to the design for Kingscliff Central Park.

    Ramps have been removed from the design for the beach accesses because:

    • Investigations with other local government revealed the ramps would:

    1. be difficult to maintain
    2. significantly increase cost of wall’s construction
    3. create a weak point in erosion protection provided by the wall

    • An audit with Council’s Aged and Disability Officer and a representative from Council’s Access Committee determined that an access ramp within the wall structure was not necessary or the best solution. A better outcome would be provided by improving accessibility at a number of locations along the beachfront between the Cudgen Headland Surf Lifesaving Club and Cudgen Creek.

    A Kingscliff Foreshore Access Plan has been produced and recommends a number of actions to make the beach accessible for all users.

    A proposed beach access for the surf club, north of the club building, has been removed from the design. Instead, the existing access south of the club will be extended to provide better year-round access.

    The holiday park amenities building will be retained, after a Conservation Management Plan identified the building had a high conservation value. It is now proposed to utilise this building to provide public toilets for the central park.

    As a result, a proposed public toilet within the park has been removed from the design, along with a realignment of internal paths providing access to the toilets.

    It is proposed to close the existing toilets under the surf club and return this area to the club.

    To maximise the potential uses of Kingscliff Central Park’s open spaces, the large grassed area in the park’s northern section has been expanded.
