Just 1km east of our Park, guests may access the coastal oceanway footpath. The spectacular outlook from this esplanade may be enjoyed over a stretch of path exceeding 5km. Although mainly level, there are hills along the way, refreshment kiosks, and four Surf Lifesaving Clubs. Highlights are the inspiring views and fresh sea breezes. Bench seats are dotted along the pathway which continues through to the heights of Point Danger. This rewarding end point is well worth the effort.
