The State Border Markers are an iconic feature of the Currumbin electorate, attracting thousands of tourists every year.

The markers built in 2001, signify the end of New South Wales and the beginning of Queensland and represent the rich history of both states.

Local member for Currumbin Jann Stuckey has joined NSW State MP for Tweed Geoff Provest, GCCC Cr Gail O’Neill, and Tweed shire council staff to discuss enhancing the appearance of the markers, following a letter from a constituent suggesting the need for a re-vamp.

Ms Stuckey says “these markers are a significant piece of our electorate and they are a unique drawcard for tourists. If we can all work together to improve them it’s beneficial for both Tweed, Coolangatta and their respective council’s”

“With the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games less than 2 years away it would be terrific to highlight this landmark in a memorable way.” Says Ms Stuckey.
