The Currimundi Lake foreshore upgrade project is complete and now being enjoyed by hundreds of locals and visitors each day.

Division 3 Councillor Peter Cox said the works provided a much-needed facelift to the area befitting the nearby Cliff Hargreaves viewing deck which opened around Christmas last year.

“This latest project included a whole range of features which align with our healthy, smart, creative vision to make this part of the Sunshine Coast, where the lake meets the sea, an even better place for everyone to enjoy,” Cr Cox said.

“There’s new beach access stairs and showers, a bicycle rack, increased seating options, bins, coastal stone retaining wall and a large turfed green space which is perfect for picnics.

“Additionally, the new coastal wall will protect the precious coastline area of Currimundi Lake for years to come.
“I would like to thank the president of Friends of Currimundi Lake, Rhondda Alexander, for her support in advocating for the project.
“Rhondda worked with me to ensure we delivered a project that would be safe and fun for everyone to enjoy while also protecting our natural environment.”
Rhondda said she and her fellow community group members were looking forward to continuing to look after the Currimundi Lake area.
“What we wanted was to have a safe place for families and visitors and the upgrade has certainly delivered that,” Rhondda said.
“We now have a stone wall and beautiful lawn to sit and play on and more seating to enjoy the lovely views and sea breeze.
“The Norfolk Pines have been saved from further erosion and take pride of place with a couple of new banksias.
“It truly has been transformed into a lovely place.”
The Currimundi Lakes Foreshore Upgrade was one of many projects funded through council’s $370 million Capital Works Program this financial year.
