Walking and cycling routes: NSW Coastline Cycleway


Coastalcycleway_banner2

Introduction

The New South Wales Coastline Cycleway is a project that aims to build a 1,400km cycling route along the entire New South Wales coastline from the Queensland border at Tweed Heads to the Victorian border south of Eden. Approximately 300 kilometres of pathway are now in place, and many local councils have plans to build further sections. The route includes sections of off-road shared pedestrian/cycle paths as well as on-road cycle lanes along local streets. Much of the route provides spectacular coastal views, and enables access for cyclists and pedestrians to a range of recreational facilities, from beaches to foreshore parks, picnic areas and playgrounds.

The Cycleway aims to avoid major roads and highways, and to provide a continuous and safe route that links together separate coastal communities. In addition, the project aims to accommodate the needs of local users in each area, by linking to existing cycle networks in each of those communities. As well as supporting active living for residents of coastal communities, the Cycleway is also intended to help boost bicycle use by tourists, by improving coastal recreation access and providing opportunities for the growth of bicycle-tourism industries.
