Starting from Eileen Peters Park off Northcliffe Terrace, this return walk follows the Surfers Paradise Beach via a concrete track, then crosses the Main Beach Parade and takes you to the scenic pedestrian bridge in Macintosh Island Park. The vast Coral Sea on one side, and the astoundingly tall skyscrapers of Surfers Paradise on the other. It’s a perfect way to get to know the area as the flat and paved track lets you focus on nothing but the amazing scenery you’re in. Don’t hesitate to bring your whole family: the track features playgrounds, bbq areas, resting spots and lots of other amenities. On top of all that, it’s wheelchair accessible. Don’t forget to stop and admire the views over Nerang River on the bridge as well. After the journey, take your shoes off and jump into the welcoming waters of Coral Sea to complete the experience. Keep in mind that dogs are not allowed at the beach. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
