The Spit and car parks to reopen

27 April 2020

The Spit will re-open and beachside car parks will be progressively opened, Mayor Tom Tate announced today.

“Congratulations Gold Coasters. You have been doing the right thing, practising social distancing and staying at home,” Mayor Tom Tate said.

“So I have taken the decision to open the Spit from midnight tonight, and we will progressively open the public car parks from today.”

Mayor Tom Tate asked everyone to abide by the Queensland Government restrictions which will be easing slightly from the weekend.

“So if you do not live within 50km of our beaches. Please do not visit."
