South Beach places a strong emphasis on revegetation to regenerate the environment and provide new habitats for wildlife prosper in the Elliott Heads neighbourhood through a diverse native gardens plant palette, essentially bringing old farmland back to life.
South Beach is operating under strict guidelines set out and approved by the Queensland Government under the Vegetation Management Act and Nature Conservation Act. With every aspect of South Beach meticulously considered, Water Sensitive Urban Design Principles will also be incorporated to ensure that impacts to downstream drainage courses, foreshore areas and open waters are minimised. South Beach stresses the importance of integrating the development into the surrounding environment with as little impact as possible, while striving to enhance and support the native ecosystem where we can.
