GCWA is working to improve the management of buoy moorings in Gold Coast waters.

These improvements flow from the Buoy Mooring Review in 2014 and our recent Buoy Mooring Management Strategy developed to accommodate the Gold Coast’s rapidly increasing population, while embracing new technology to improve safety and reduce the impact of buoy moorings on the marine environment.

We’re looking closely at the conditions for all buoy mooring authorities and will be gradually phasing out traditional block and tackle buoy moorings in favour of environmentally friendly moorings.
