This walk is the first section of the Creek to Coast Trail which is a 9 km one way hike from the center of the NP out to the coast.
Explore Abell Point Marina, Airlie Lagoon and the centre of town on this easy and accessible walk along the foreshore.
There are numerous lookouts along the way with spectacular views, in particular at the summit. From here, looking north, we were greeted with coastal views to Fan Rock, Yeppoon Harbour and Yeppoon Village. Looking south we could see Emu Park and beyond.
The walk along the beach is quite something, turquoise waters specked with white caps from the easterly cooling breeze, leading your gaze out across the Kepple Isles Bay to the subtropical islands at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef.
Winding through the Mary Cairncross Reserve this is a wonderful way to view some of the Sunshine Coast Hinterlands natural rainforests and if your lucky catch a glimpse of some unique wildlife including the Red Legged Pademelon, a small wallaby like marsupial.
