The Gold Coast Waterways Authority commissioned Place Design Group to produce the detailed design of Stage 1 of the Spit Master Plan implementation project. An iconic and essential area to the wider Gold Coast community, the initial stages of the implementation focus around the Seaway Promenade and the Moondarewa Spit areas within the wider Spit.

As one of the most active recreational assets in the area, the focus was to retain elements the community already love. The built form, including pavilions, outlook structures and landscape forms, gained inspiration from both the surrounding natural and built environment. The incorporation of platforms for rest and gazing for those who may not be able to step out on the sand were also key elements to allow inclusivity on all levels.
