Coastal adaptation

Our changing coastline

We have 220km of coastline and foreshore across the Redlands, from Tingalpa Creek at Thorneside south to the mouth of the Logan River and across the Southern Moreton Bay islands and North Stradbroke Island.

The wind, waves and tides are constantly changing our coastline. These changes can have a big impact on how our city works – and the wellbeing of our population.

Council has drafted a Coastal Adaptation Strategy to help us manage these changes in a sustainable way. The draft strategy identifies 44 locations at risk of coastal erosion, and proposes management solutions for each.

We want to know what you've seen at these locations and whether you think the proposed solutions will work. We also want to know about other coastal locations affected by erosion.

Share your knowledge about an area by dragging and dropping a red pin to a location. You can add a photo and comments, and also pin additional locations you believe to be at risk.

  • What do you think is most at risk and requiring protection at that location? Are roads, pathways or buildings being damaged by erosion?
  • Have cyclones or king tides affected the area? Has the birdlife and marine life changed as a result? What changes have you seen?
  • How have these events and changes affected or disrupted the surrounding community? Has this impacted on you personally?
