Double chance for Queensland in World Surfing Reserve bids
The Save the Waves Coalition is set to decide if a Queensland beach will become a World Surfing Reserve.
The Gold Coast, and Noosa are the only areas other than Guarda Do Embaú in Brazil to make the short-list.
Only one world surfing reserve is approved each year by international body, Save the Waves Coalition, and Queensland Environment Minister Dr Steven Miles is encouraged that Queensland has two shots at the title.
Dr Miles stated "it is well known worldwide that Queensland is one of the greatest places to visit if you’re a surfer.
“One of our election commitments was to work with Gold Coast City Council and the community to have the Gold Coast’s southern beaches and surf breaks declared a world surfing reserve.
“But we are also delighted that Noosa’s beaches, already recognised as a National Surfing Reserve, have made it on to the shortlist'.
The Save the Waves Coalition meets today (Wednesday 14th October) but isn’t expected to officially announce the winner until next month.
The World Surfing Reserves program was launched in December 2008 by the Save the Waves Coalition to identify, designate and preserve outstanding waves, surf zones and their surrounding environments throughout the world.
Information on the Save the Waves Coalition and its World Surfing Reserve program is available at www.savethewaves.org/programs/world-surfing-reserves.
