Fabulous 3.8 km circuit alongside both sides of Currimundi Lake and the beach at the end.
This easy grade route is suitable for a walk with the family or solo run. Cyclists can also do most of the circuit (out and back) except the beach crossing at the end.
Anyone who loves sand and water will enjoy this 4km (approx.) circuit. The majority of the track is lakeside with sections through coastal bushlands on the southern and northern sides of the lake.
You cross over the lake via the pedestrian path on the bridge on the western end and walk across the beach on the eastern coast side where there is a beautiful open beach.
Watch for wildlife and birds such as Osprey. Vegetation varies throughout the catchment and includes melaleuca wetlands, eucalypt woodland and patches of littoral rainforest
When you are finished, enjoy a protected lake swim in sheltered waters. Plus, there are coffee shops and eateries at Currimundi. This is a great place to go any time of day. Toilets, BBQs, benches, playgrounds and small grass areas abound.
How to get there
There are numerous places you can park and start east of Nicklin Way. On the southern side of the lake you can park on Westaway Parade either near the surf beach or part way along at near Frank McIvor Park or other side streets in between. On the northern side you can find a spot on Coongarra Esplanade.
