Protections for World Surfing Reserves in Queensland

We are working with local residents, businesses and the surfing community to develop options for greater protection of Queensland’s 2 World Surfing Reserves at Noosa and the Gold Coast.

Queensland is home to some of the world’s most-loved surfing destinations. Surfing is also an integral part of Queensland life in coastal communities, a significant nature-based drawcard for tourism, a driver of business and an increasingly popular and mainstream sport.

The development of protections for the Noosa and Gold Coast World Surfing Reserves will help ensure these natural assets are safeguarded and preserved for future generations.
