Cairns Northern Cycleway

Council will be continuing the Cairns Northern Cycleway project.

The next stage will involve continuing the 3-metre wide pathway from the existing path on the eastern side of the Lower Freshwater Road intersection, along the Rail Line to Ryan Weare Park where it will connect with the existing path on the western side of the Freshwater Creek bridge.

A new bridge crossing is to be built within the Freshwater Creek section, as well as two new culvert crossings. As in other sections of the cycleway, fencing will be installed to separate the pathway from the rail corridor.

Vegetation removal has been limited as much as possible and replacement plantings will be undertaken wherever practical.

Works are estimated to start late March/April 2018, weather permitting. For information, please email

This active travel initiative is being jointly funded by the Queensland Government and Cairns Regional Council.
