Coastal Pathway

The Coastal Pathway is council’s longest shared pathway. It stretches from Pelican Waters Bell’s Creek in the south to Tewantin in the north[140KB].

Council’s vision is for this pathway to be a world class scenic route connecting the coast. People can explore the beautiful coastline by walking, jogging or cycling. The pathway runs beside beaches, parks and leisure areas. Some sections of the Coastal Pathway are on-road for cyclists.


Look for the new Coastal Pathway symbol to make finding your way along the pathway easier. Additional information is provided on maps and distance markers[63KB]. More signs will be added to the pathway as funds become available.

The pathway has been divided into 11 sections called ‘connections’. Connection lengths work well for one day walks or casual cycling. The first connection to be signed is the Maroochydore Connection[180KB]. It stretches 4.4km from Cotton Tree Park to The Esplanade, Mooloolaba.


Council, the Queensland Sport and Recreation Program and the Queensland Government Cycle Network Program have jointly funded construction of many sections of the coastal pathway.

Alexandra Headland, Maroochydore and Mooloolaba Rotary Clubs contributed financial assistance towards installing stage 1 of the new signage.

Caloundra's coastal pathway

Caloundra’s Coastal Pathway is a breathtaking nine-kilometre stretch of paths, meandering along Caloundra’s beaches from Bells Creek in the south to Point Cartwright in the north.

With sights such as a lighthouse, lakes, creeks and surf beaches cropping up along the Coastal Pathway, this scenic trail is a great reason to get out and about and explore Caloundra’s natural beauty.

The former Caloundra Council spent $4.3 million on the planning and construction of the Coastal Pathway, designed specifically for walking and cycling.
