Gold Coast Oceanway - Tugun to Bilinga

A key focus for the City of Gold Coast is connecting people and places and ensuring there are a range of transport options serving the city.

The Gold Coast Oceanway is a 36 kilometre network of shared cycle and pedestrian pathways along the coastline areas from the New South Wales border to the Gold Coast Seaway.

The Oceanway is very popular and provides shared cycle and walking paths along our iconic coastline.

Project background

In 2011 the City commissioned a forward planning report for a 1.7-kilometre section of Oceanway to connect existing pathway at Bilinga Surf Life Saving Club to existing pathway at O’Connor Park, Tugun.

In November 2016, Council resolved to support a pathway almost identical to the option recommended in the Tugun to Bilinga Oceanway Planning Report 2011.

Planning for the Tugun to Bilinga Oceanway project was undertaken in 2017. A detailed survey was undertaken and a preferred alignment and landscaping plan for a 3.5 metre wide path was developed.

Project information

The project is currently in the detailed design stage. It is anticipated that the design for the Tugun to Bilinga Oceanway will be completed in March 2018.

Early works such as tree relocation and removal will commence in May 2018.

Construction is due to commence in July 2018. This page will be updated as works progress.


  • This pathway is part of our investment to extend our network of walkways and bike paths to create a safer and better connected Gold Coast.
  • Improved facilities such as seating, drinking fountains, path lighting and bike racks at the street ends will benefit locals and visitors.
  • The new section of Oceanway will provide access for the mobility impaired.
