About the project

There is nothing quite like sitting on a beach overlooking our region’s pristine, unspoiled golden white sands and Council is looking for input from the community to identify foreshore areas where the provision of picnic tables, benches and other furniture would improve enjoyment of the area and encourage increased visitation.

Across the region, Council provides benches and picnic areas, in a variety of settings, including grassy, beachside and rainforest. There are many tables to choose from that are perfect for family outings, birthday parties or just to sit and enjoy our World Heritage environment.

With the Beach Furniture Clean Up program being undertaken; Council want to provide an opportunity to consider permanent structures as replacements in areas that matter to you and support residents and visitors who make use of our beach foreshore areas.

We want to hear from the community on where they would like to see benches and picnic tables installed. Works will commence in the coming months and continue into 2024.

Council is currently developing its Open Space Strategy and suggestions for additional furniture in Council managed Parks and Open Space will be assessed in conjunction with that process.
