Coastal pathway

Explore the Sunshine Coast’s beautiful coastline from Bells Creek to Coolum on the 73km coastal pathway.

Coastal pathway

The Sunshine Coast Coastal pathway is 73km long and stretches from Bells Creek in the south to Coolum in the north. It takes advantage of the spectacular coastline that is hugely enjoyed by residents and visitors. 

The pathway is split into nine segments, called connections, and runs beside beaches, parks and leisure areas. People can explore the coastline by walking, jogging or cycling on a combination of on and off road networks. Whether you're looking for a half day cycling adventure or just a beachside stroll, there is something for everyone.

Check out the coastal pathway guide or get a copy from your local bike shop, visitor information centre or council office.
