Elliott Heads path to connect residents to the coast

The Scenic Foreshore Pathway will be 350 metres long and parallel to the ocean at Elliott Heads.

Exercise enthusiasts will have a new coastal pathway to access after construction is finished at the oceanfront site in Elliott Heads.

Bundaberg Regional Council recently received an application for operational works for the stretch of pathway by Edals Investments Pty Ltd at Ocean Heights Estate.

The pathway is part of ongoing construction plans for the company's new housing development in the area.

The foreshore route will be situated at the front of the coastal strip, directly adjacent Sea Esplanade.

It will follow the natural surface to avoid interfering with natural stormwater runoff, allow for easy maintenance and protect environmental values along the coast.

Managing director of Edals Investments Dale Hancock said the “scenic foreshore pathway” would be 350 metres long and parallel to the ocean.

“This will allow residents and visitors to enjoy the scenic coastal views of Elliott Heads,” he said.

“The scenic pathway, constructed close to the cliff face, will also allow the public to walk and cycle uninterrupted from the most northerly point in Elliott Heads, south to the mouth of the Elliott River.”

Dale said the developers were pleased to be able to facilitate the pathway and enable Elliott Heads residents direct access to the coastline and enjoy one of the most pristine coastal strips in Queensland.

He said it was an added feature to the construction work going ahead for stage four of Ocean Heights Estate.

“Operational works are nearing completion, with 60 per cent of stage four pre-sold and enquiries continuing to be strong,” he said.

“The feedback from buyers into Ocean Heights Estate is that they love the lifestyle of a sea change and affordable living that Elliott Heads has to offer.

“There are a further 240 lots to be developed with a minimum land area of 800 square metres in the remaining stages.”

Council's divisional representative Cr Tanya McLoughlin said the new pathway would be a welcome addition to the growing area.

“Elliott Heads has seen amazing transformation recently, with the foreshore redevelopment providing greater access to the beautiful beach and a wonderful spot for residents to relax,” she said.

“News of an added pathway in the area is fantastic and will give locals and visitors alike even more opportunity to exercise and take in our beautiful coastal suburb.”

The scenic foreshore pathway is due to begin construction in the next few weeks.

  1. That's good news for those moving into the Elliott Heads area, but what about access to mains sewerage for some existing residents (some long term) of the Coral Cove and Innes Park areas. Some have been waiting for this for years. What is happening with this and when can we expect access to sewerage??
