Coochiemudlo Island Shoreline Erosion Management Plan

Coochiemudlo Island (Goochie Mudlo) is located off the coast of south-east Queensland in the southern part of Moreton Bay (Quandamooka).

With an emerald fringe of native plants and trees, caves, and beaches, Coochiemudlo Island and surrounding waters are home to an array of wildlife, including migratory shorebirds, dugongs, turtles, dolphins and soldier crabs.

Parts of this small, sub-tropical island, however, are subject to coastal erosion brought on by weather events and storm tide inundation.

Redland City Council, with input from the Community Reference Group (CRG) and other stakeholder groups, is developing a comprehensive plan known as a Shoreline Erosion Management Plan (SEMP) to identify the island's erosion hot-spots and recommend the most suitable management options to help protect the island from coastal erosion.

What is the Community Reference Group?

The SEMP's CRG represents a cross-section of the island community and includes representatives from Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation. The CRG has been involved in developing the SEMP since 2017.

The CRG brings together Traditional Owners and local stakeholders to contribute their local knowledge of erosion, as well as the wider cultural, historical, environmental, and economic values of the island.

This group will also contribute by sharing information, insights, and progress reports back to their community networks.

Everyone can get involved

Share your photos of Coochiemudlo Island's erosion hot-spots, including any historic images you have, or shots you took after big storms or other weather events.

Simply click or tap on the map of the island, find the erosion hot-spot on the map, and add a pin to upload your photos. You can even write some words describing the erosion you have seen there.
