Connecting hinterland townships

SUITABILITY

HIGHLIGHTS
This is a popular recreational ride, walk or run for many locals. Linking the two hinterland townships of Woombye and Palmwoods, the paths provides users with a safe and sealed track. The hilly hinterland stretch makes this a perfect workout for those wishing to increase their fitness levels, or maximise their time exercising. The ride beings and ends in the heart of both towns, providing ample parking, and access to amenities, water and shade.

Good walk from Woombye to Palmwoods. Yummy brekky at The Cocoa Tree before return walk back to Woombye. We did initially start down by railway track thinking path followed but found our way to path that virtually runs parallel to Nambour Connection Road. 😄

We parked in Woombye and made it about half way before turning back. It was a bit too hilly for my 5yr old twins on their bikes, and imagine it would be tough if pushing a pram. A nice walk (what we saw of it, anyway!), but maybe best suited to older kids if using bikes.
