Coastal Walk Improvements

Good news where our local beaches are concerned! Stage 1 of the upgrade of the Charlie Uptin to Flagstaff Hill section of our iconic Coastal Walk is now complete. The Coastal Walk is a 9km walking trail that travels from Westport Park, through the Port Macquarie CBD to Tacking Point Lighthouse.

The Council and Restart NSW Government have allocated a budget of $1,762,000 to upgrade the Coastal Walk with Stage 2 upgrades planned to be underway in March. More upgrades will be from Charlie Uptin to Flagstaff Hill, The Doctors and Kenny Walks, including new boardwalks, replacing footpaths with wider concrete paths, new handrails, improved signage, drinking fountain, new viewing platforms, seating and regeneration.

All this work is expected to finish by June. So once this is all done, why not park up at Town Beach and head off for a walk – you can relax and reward yourself on the way back at Salty Crew with a smoothie or coffee and look out to the amazing sea views that are on offer.
