The Tallebudgera Creek glow-up continues with the boardwalk undergoing a $3.4 million upgrade.

The boardwalk follows other improvements in the popular beachfront location including upgrades on the nearby training wall, and Tallebudgera Creek Park which was completed in February.

“A new and improved boardwalk will be the final piece of the puzzle in our Tallebudgera Creek upgrades,” said Mayor Tom Tate.

“Tallebudgera Creek is one of the coast’s most popular spots for locals and visitors to enjoy the natural beauty of our city.”

“The improvements are crucial to accommodate a growing number of people and improving safety and aesthetics, as well as reducing future maintenance and boosting protection against erosion impacts from floods, storms and king tides.”

A new 4-metre-wide deck will replace the existing 2 metre boardwalk and new features will include seating, lighting and a viewing platform.

The upgrade also includes new landscaping with 30 new trees being planted alongside a range of coastal vegetation.

There will be new support piers constructed and a small rock wall added to provide erosion protection.

The boardwalk renewal and upgrade is supported by an Australian Government grant totalling $2,473,650 through the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.

Work on the boardwalk is taking place Monday to Friday from 7am to 5pm with access along the boardwalk and beach between Tallebudgera Creek Park and dog off leash area temporarily closed.

A temporary detour via the Gold Coast Highway and nearby surf club is available during construction.

The Tallebudgera Creek boardwalk project is expected to be completed in August this year.

Recent works on Tallebudgera Creek Park include new pathways and improved beach access, new public amenities, a ‘Changing Places’ facility for reduced mobility access, upgraded barbecue and picnic areas and improved landscaping.
