What’s happening on the Mooloolaba foreshore as part of Queensland Government’s revitalisation project

The multimillion-dollar project that will revitalise the Mooloolaba foreshore has reached a very special stage.

On Monday July 26, 2021 a viewing platform, boardwalk and access ramps were completed as the long-awaited project gets underway.

The Jetty Specialists, who constructed the platform and boardwalk infrastructure, is connecting Alexandra Headland to the new Mooloolaba foreshore parkland. It will make it easier for everyone to enjoy the beach.

Mooloolaba revitalisation projectThe Queensland Government has given $4.5 million to the project.

Member for Caloundra Jason Hunt said he was proud of the government’s COVID-19 Recovery Action Plan, and the project was designed to boost the Sunshine Coast’s economy after the impacts of the pandemic

We are now in the process of developing a strategic plan to improve the foreshore at Mooloolaba, and that includes some exciting projects including a masterplan for a new waterfront precinct.

The Foreshore works have been progressing well, and I’m pleased to see that the parklands will be open to the public by the end of the year.

Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson says the new parkland gave families and friends the opportunity to connect with each other.

Mayor Jameson stated that they’re constructing a new playground, creating more lawn space, providing picnic tables, adding barbeques and installing new benches and trash receptacles.

A new waterfront park and development will be constructed on Mooloolaba’s waterfront.

It will be a wonderful new viewing platform and boardwalk at Alex Bluff Foreshore Park and the boardwalk, between Alexandra Headland and Mooloolaba will create excellent connections to this new parkland,. I’m delighted that the Queensland Government has partnered with us to deliver this terrific project.

The revitalisation will create more public beachfront park land by 40 per cent, include new pathways along the waterfront, and offer improved public spaces and amenities.

We’ll have the car park closed on the day of the event and on Monday, 26 July.

The 120-tonne crane will be here for one day, but it could stay longer depending on the weather and site.

In the past 2 years, stage 1 work has focussed on constructing a new accessible boardwalk connecting Alexandra Headland and Mooloolaba, a new viewing platform, and replacing the seawall to protect the foreshore and community infrastructure.

Construction of the next phase will include: the building of a new set of stairs linking the outdoor gym area to the new parkland. a new shelter for barbecuing in the newly built open space. new landscaping throughout the new parkland.
