Circuit

An easy neighborhood walk along the pathways of Maroochy Waters - this circuit loops you past three scenic park areas and the Maroochy Waters canal.

SUITABILITY
Suitable for adults and older children as the last 200m of the loop is on grassed footpaths and not suitable for bikes or scooters.

HIGHLIGHTS
Your starting point at Mayflower Park is a quiet, large-sized park, great for a game of football, and has an excellent playground for the kids. Walk through this park to the far western corner and take the exit onto the footpath on Maroochy Waters Drive. Only 20 meters away is the second little tranquil park with a paved walkway that loops you around and back onto the footpath. Continue north and wind your way past some truly marvelous front gardens until you reach the third park opposite the canals.

Rest awhile on the canal jetty and watch the mullet jumping from the water before departing for the last section of the loop. Continue towards Traders Place and stay on the footpath that leads onto the shared bike/pedestrian path. Although you are beside the motorway, the opportunity for a good run or cycle on this section is achievable as the path is wide and relatively straight. The local shops and tavern at Traders Place offer refreshment opportunities. Turn left off the footpath and head down Arwen Street and the side entry into Mayflower Park to complete the loop. This last section is grassed footpath.

AFTERWARDS
Enjoy a picnic in Mayflower Park or head back to Maroochydore for a dip in the ocean.

HOW TO GET THERE
To the starting point: there are roads leading off Main Road that lead to Tepequar Drive. Parking is available on Tepequar Drive opposite the park.
To the end point: same as start
