A local secret and highly varied trail, vegetation-wise, that takes you to a remote part of Peregian Beach with views back to Emu Mountain.

SUITABILITY
Suitable for walkers of all ages – mostly flat though can be wet in sections

HIGHLIGHTS
This short and simple single track east of Emu Mountain crosses over a small wetland and boardwalk complete with rushes and swamp birds, before winding through sedges and coastal heath and sand dunes to the most isolated section of Peregian Beach.

You are likely to see Brahminy kites soaring overhead and hear Wallum froglets croaking in the wetlands. Wildflowers bloom July through to September.

Some sections of track get swampy, even weeks after rain. Forget about closed in shoes, go for thongs or crocs, or enjoy walking barefoot on the beach.

Allow an hour if you want to enjoy time on the beach. A bonus are the views back to Emu mountain.
Be sure to take some mosquito repellent and plenty of water if you plan on walking the beach.

AFTERWARDS
If you are feeling energetic you can start or end your walk at either Peregian Beach or Coolum Beach. Take the shared pathway from either direction along David Low Way, turn into this beach access path and walk the beach back to your starting destination.

The beach access path is roughly halfway between Peregian and Coolum, approximately 3 km from each. This is a great way to do a 6 km circuit.

HOW TO GET THERE
To the starting point: About 3 km north of Coolum on the Right Hand side is this little unnamed road tucked in the bushland opposite the Noosa National Park, Emu Mountain section.

Travelling from Peregian in the North it’s about 500 metres south of Havana Road on the coast side. There’s a small green national parks sign and small area to pull off if you are driving. The walk starts from here.

To the end point: The end point is the same as your starting point. As per the route mapped it’s a there and back, however you can make this a longer circuit route. (See Afterwards section).

The Persian section is a nice and secret 30 Mon walk between David low way and the ocean. The website describes very well how to access it. The parking is small, about 5cars. No picnic table. There are plenty of birds in the surrounding bushes singing a gentle melody. The boardwalk is covered by the paper bark tree making it beautiful. Finally you reach the beach with splendid views of Noosa and maroochydore
