Whitsunday Paradise Foreshore Reserve - 5 Year Plan

Consultation has concluded

Whitsunday Regional Council is taking care of the foreshore area at Whitsunday Paradise in Bowen, by developing a 5 year Management Plan for the area.

The foreshore reserve is zoned for both recreation and environment, and contains sections of littoral rainforest or ‘beach scrub’ which is classified as endangered.

Council is proposing to rehabilitate sections of the foreshore and leave areas of the foreshore open for recreational community use.

Council wants to ensure this important ecosystem is rehabilitated and protected for future generations. Vegetation on coastal dune systems play an important role in protecting the coastline from erosion and storm surge, while also providing habitat for coastal plants and animals.


Have Your Say

Community Consultation will be open until 5pm, Friday 21 June 2019. Feedback can be submitted online below by completing the short survey, in person at the Public Display or Customer Service Centre, or by post.

A Community Info Session will take place on Saturday 15 June at the foreshore reserve, with a Council officer in attendance to discuss the proposed Plan and get feedback.
