The Northern Beaches Leisure Trail is being designed and constructed in a staged approach to deliver on Council’s vision to connect Palm Cove to Cairns city.

Once complete, the shared path will provide a continuous walking and cycling link for locals and visitors alike. It will offer enhanced recreation and fitness amenities for the entire community including young families using prams, people in wheelchairs, seniors with mobility devices and people on bikes.

The trail will provide a unique recreation and tourism experience that showcases the region’s beautiful beaches and island views, as well as providing an important active transport alternative to the car.

Head to the Northern Beachers Leisure Trail webpage for more information about the project.

Alignment and bridge connection

This section of the leisure trail will be a combination of on and off-road pathway with a connection to Syd and Jayne Granville Park.

The proposed pathway and bridge connection alignment has been designed to showcase the region’s beautiful beaches and views.  View the preferred alignment by clicking on the link in the for download section below.
