The Gold Coast Turf Club, with the approval of the Gold Coast City Council, has destroyed most of the lake.

However, at the Council meeting on 01/09/2020 the Council voted to retain what is left.

Let's hope that they don't change their minds again and decide to continue the destruction of this beautiful habitat.

Remainder of the lake

Don't let the Council and the Gold Coast Turf Club destroy the rest of the lake
