Our online reviewers say

“Good walk for families, whether walking or cycling. If you like clear open space and water views the whole way, you'll enjoy this walk.”

“A great family walk...hardly anyone around - great for young kids to get used to bike riding up and down gentle slopes."

Suitability

Suitable for walkers and recreational cyclists – pram and wheelchair friendly - an easy grade all round.

Highlights

This pathway is well known by locals (and often referred to as the “Lake Kawana loop”) – a short little adventure that enables you to cross the Mooloolah River on a cement causeway with parklands on either side. Given the urbanised surrounds it is a surprisingly peaceful location.

Strategically placed benches provide rest stops in the shade and with views of the river. At the half-way mark, leave the main path and walk up to the bridge, cross the road at the roundabout and walk down to re-join the main path for the remainder of the walk on the other side of the lake.
