Gold Coast has experienced periods of severe erosion. In 1967, a series of 11 cyclones removed most of the sand from Gold Coast beaches.
The Government of Queensland engaged engineers from Delft University in the Netherlands to advise what to do about the erosion.
The Delft Report was published in 1971 and outlined a series of works for Gold Coast Beaches including Gold Coast Seaway,works at Narrow Neck that resulted in the Northern Gold Coast Protection Strategyand works at the Tweed River that became the Tweed River Entrance Sand Bypassing Project
By 2005 most of the recommendations of the 1971 Delft Report had been implemented. Gold Coast commenced implementation of Protection Strategy but ran into considerable opposition from the community participating in a NO REEF protest campaign.
Gold Coast Council then committed to completing a review of management practices to update the Delft Report.
The Gold Coast Shoreline Management Plan will be delivered by organisations including the Environmental Protection Agency, Gold Coast and the Griffith Centre for Coastal Management.
Gold Coast is also investing into the quality and capacity of the Gold Coast Oceanway that provides sustainable transport along Gold Coast beaches.

The observation deck at level 77 is the highest of its kind in Queensland and offers views in all directions, from Brisbane to Byron Bay.

Another famous tourist attraction are the Surfers Paradise Meter Maids, instituted in 1965 to put a positive spin on new parking regulations.
To avoid tickets being issued for expired parking, the Meter Maids dispense coins into the meter and leave a calling card under the windscreen wiper of the vehicle. The Maids are still a part of the Surfers Paradise culture but the scheme is now run by private enterprise.
