Queensland, Australia to get Nude Beach
Govt to consider clothes-free beach
Thursday, 8 September 2005.
The Queensland Government says it will consider a request to trial a clothes-free beach in the Burnett shire.
The majority of councillors yesterday voted to ask the Government to allow a nudist beach in the district.
Mayor Ray Duffy says while he would not frequent one, he does think the council has a responsibility to provide an area for those who would.
"We're going to seek some public comment," he said.
"We're also going to look at changes we'd need to make to local laws and based on that we'll make an application to the Queensland Government that we be the first of the three beaches that are set aside for 'clothing-optional' in the state of Queensland."
