Southern tip of South Stradbroke Island

The Gold Coast Waterways Authority (GCWA) interests relate to the waterways within the Gold Coast Local Government area, essentially those inland from the coast and lying between Currumbin Creek and Jumpinpin.

Assets include the Gold Coast Seaway and Sand Bypass System, including interests in the associated Crown reserves of Doug Jennings Park, Wave Break Island and the southern tip of South Stradbroke Island – and a recognised network of 33 channels.

South Stradbroke Island is a 21 km long, relatively narrow island between Jumpinpin Inlet and the training walls of the Gold Coast Seaway. South Stradbroke Island is the smaller one of the two Stradbroke Islands and lies very close to the mainland.
