A coastal path that starts in the bushland at the end of Dicky Beach and takes you through a shaded pathway to the eastern end of Currimundi Lake.

SUITABILITY
Suitable for walkers and recreational cyclists and is an easy grade.

HIGHLIGHTS
This is an easy 1.5-kilometre one-way walk or cycle that is suitable for the whole family. Walkers have the option to walk along the path through beautiful coastal bushland, with pockets of views onto the local beaches. Otherwise, head down onto the beach, and enjoy a swim along the way!

The path option will take you across the picturesque Coondibah Creek bridge, with expansive views over the creek (beautiful any time of day).
Once you reach Currimundi Lake you won’t want to leave in a hurry. The calm waters and endless sand make it an aquatic playground for the whole family.
This section of the coastal pathway is a great option for hotter days and for recreational cyclists.

TAKE CARE
Bikes on pathway can come through quite quickly so dogs must be on leash for everyone's safety. Give dogs free time at the lake.

AFTERWARDS
Once you reach Currimundi Lake spend some time enjoying the surrounds in Cliff Hargreaves Park. This popular park overlooks Currimundi Lake and has a playground, barbecue and picnic tables, natural shade, beach showers as well as public amenities. Alternatively, you can purchase food and drinks from the beach front cafes.
Feeling energetic, continue north along the coastal pathway!

HOW TO GET THERE
To the starting point: Park your car at Dicky Beach and then head towards the surf club and you’ll see the pathway continue past the club.
To the end point: The end point is the same as the starting point.

You can't beat a sunrise or sunset walk along here. A mix of options for where you walk, whether along the path and boardwalk, or along the beach. I always come across friendly locals that give a smile or a hello. No inclines so a perfect, relaxing walk for two legged and even four legged creatures.

A great bike ride suitable for primary aged children. My 5 and 8 year old boys enjoy the easy ride and I love that this is an activity the whole family can do.

A lovely coastal walk combining ocean views, sections of shady coastal canopy and lots of friendly locals with their canine friends.

I love this walk! A wonderful mix of ocean views, wetlands and lots of birdlife. Great walk to do early in the morning or late in the afternoon.
