Coastal pathways

City of Gold Coast is expanding the Gold Coast's network of coastal trails. These trails and pathways provide sustainable access to our world-renowned beaches, foreshores and waterways.

Sustainable travel is becoming increasingly important as our population grows. With more than 50 kilometres of cycle and walkways along our foreshores, take the opportunity to explore our coastal wonderland by foot or bike.

Future of coastal pathways

As the Gold Coast's population continues to grow, so does our footprint. To keep our foreshores looking beautiful it's vital we reduce our impact on these areas.

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

To keep up with the city's growth, we are investing in more 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.
