Coastal pathways

Boasting world-renowned beaches and enviable waterways, the City is growing the Gold Coast’s network of coastal trails, providing sustainable access to our foreshores.

As an emerging cosmopolitan city, looking at ways to travel sustainably around the Gold Coast is becoming increasingly important. With more than 50 kilometres of cycle and walkways along our foreshores, take the opportunity to start exploring our coastal wonderland by foot or bike.

As the Gold Coast’s population continues to grow, so does our footprint. To keep our foreshores looking beautiful it is vital we reduce the average footprint around these areas in particular.

A great way of reducing your coastal footprint is to travel along our coastal pathways as a pedestrian or cyclist. Walking and cycling is also a great way to be active and healthy.

To keep up with the growth on the Gold Coast, the City is investing in coastal pathways so everyone can explore our beautiful foreshores sustainably.

New and improved pathways have recently been constructed along:

  • the Tugun to Bilinga Oceanway
  • the Southern Points (Kirra to Point Danger)
  • Broadbeach (Kurrawa Park to First Avenue)
  • The Spit (Mirage Hotel to Sea World)
  • Broadwaterway at Paradise Point and Southport
  • underpasses at Thrower Drive, Palm Beach
  • lighting for the Burleigh Oceanway
  • Surfers Central Oceanway.
