As Kirra Point is one of my Husband’s favourite surfing spots, he attended the rally to save Kirra on Australia Day along with 3,000 people who turned up to paddle in a peaceful but symbolic protest. It was a great show of comradery as the surfing community came together in an effort to bring Kirra back to it’s original glory.
This prompted both Government and Council to hear the people and act on their concerns. The Government and Gold Coast City Council are now looking at moving 60,000 cubic metres of sand, 75 metres back from the shoreline into a 1.5 metre sloping sand dune from the corner of Kirra Point to North Kirra. This will be the first positive step to Bring Back Kirra and work could start prior to the December school holidays with any luck!
The Kirra SurfStock Festival will be held from Currumbin to Kirra Beach QLD, November 5th to 8th 2009 to celebrate, create awareness and bring families and communities together to have some fun.
