Pleasant Surprise in the Heart of Nambour

SUITABILITY
Suitable for walkers and a great walk for local families.

HIGHLIGHTS
Starting at Petrie Park Road and ending at Carter Road, the Gary Evans Walkway is approximately a 20-minute walk.

The paved walkway follows the banks of the Petrie Creek, with plenty of seating and large open green spaces to picnic along the way. Mostly shaded, the short walk provides the perfect setting for local families and visitors.
The walkway is also home to the Model Railway Park, and if you're lucky you will hear the toot-tooting in the distance, as the Mini Train Rides circle the tracks!
For those looking to increase the heart rate, create your own exercise routine on the outdoor gym equipment and get fit outside for free.

For our furry family friends, there is a large off lease park for them to run wild (please obey the signs). This can be found along Petrie Park Road, on one half of the sporting field. And don’t forgot to keep an eye out for the water dragons, who are often found relaxing in the sun along the pathways!

AFTERWARDS

Head into town for a coffee at one of the many local cafes, then take a short walk to the Nambour Aquatic Centre or Nambour Skate Park with the kids.

HOW TO GET THERE

To the starting point: Travelling along Currie Street, turn onto Price Street, and then take the next right onto Petrie Park Road (look for the clubhouse). Parking is available along Petrie Park Road.
To the end point: Once you have reached Carter Road the walk is complete. Turn around and head back to the start!
