Beach staircases set to help stabilise Mackay dunes

Jul 29, 2014 |

Kite-boarders, walkers and beach-goers can now enjoy eco friendly access to Town Beach, thanks to improved beach planning.

Beach Plans developed in partnership with the community, Reef Catchments and Mackay Regional Council for Town and Far Beaches are being put into action, with the construction of a new staircase at Town Beach.

The staircase was made from recycled materials and is located off Binnington Esplanade, opposite Mulherin Street.

The Town and Far Beach Plans have been developed to ensure the long term sustainability of this 4.5 kilometre stretch of coastline, which is a highly popular destination for Mackay beach-goers.
