Footpaths

Council is responsible for maintaining more than 500 kilometres of footpaths, more than 110 connecting footbridges, and numerous boardwalks and off-road recreational walking tracks. Council allocates an annual budget for repairing existing paths and for construction of new paths. Repairs are programmed following annual footpath inspection results however, if other issues are reported they are treated as a priority.

Footpath maintenance activities include:

  • Concrete patches and repairs;
  • Paver re-laying and repairs;
  • Pressure cleaning and chewing gum removal;
  • Sweeping.
For more information on cycling and walking in Cairns, including maps showing the off-road paths and on-road bike lanes, visit our cycling and walking page.

All footpaths are shared facilities for pedestrians and cyclists unless signed otherwise.
