Abstract
    The sustainability of an upcoming reclamation project at Southport Parklands on the Gold Coast, Australia, was assessed. Southport Parklands has been under development for a long time, which led to irreversible damages to the coastal environment. Therefore, it is important to have a proactive design strategy for a sustainable development. In the present study, a numerical model has been established to simulate hydrodynamic processes. A better understanding of the physical processes advocated developers to adopt a proactive strategy for all new foreshore protection designing.
