Suitable for walkers (and prams and wheelchairs for part of the way). Also suitable for mountain bikers.

HIGHLIGHTS
A pleasant path through coastal bushland, a great alternative to beachside walking for local residents.

This trail is quite close to Peregian Springs commercial center café. And there is a playground just a little further south at The Avenue Park Duck Pond Peregian Springs – off The Avenue (at the southern end of Peregian Springs Drive).

HOW TO GET THERE

To the end point: The end point is the same as your starting point.
