The coastal pathway is one of council's key infrastructure projects. The vision for the project is to develop a 'world class scenic coastal pathway'.
In line with the master plan, alignments have been established for a linking pathway between the existing coastal pathway at the southern end of Oceanic Drive, near Moondara Drive to Driftwood Court in Bokarina.
Construction of the project started in March 2015, with stage four between Blue Haven Court and Driftwood Court, Bokarina about to commence.
Where to from here
It is now possible to walk, run or cycle continuously from Bells Creek at Golden Beach, to the northern end of Oceanic Drive, South Wurtulla. Completed sections of the coastal path have proved extremely popular with the broader community. An 80% approval rating for the project has been recorded through various public consultation surveys over a ten year implementation program.
State Government approval for the project was received in February 2015. Council's Natural Assets Team is overseeing the project to ensure minimal environmental disturbance during construction. Revegetation and weed removal will be undertaken as part of the work.
The coastal pathway between Wurley Drive and Blue Haven Court will be constructed as part of future residential development.
Council supports an unbroken walking and cycle pathway from Bells Creek in Golden Beach, to Tewantin, known as the Coastal Pathway. Support for the pathway was demonstrated at public talks for the Caloundra Coastal Pathway Master Plan. It is now possible to walk, run or cycle almost continuously from Bell’s Creek to Oceanic Drive.
