Coastal Walk is a trek worth taking on the Coffs Coast

AN IMPROVED tourist attraction, the 60km Solitary Islands Coastal Walk, linking Sawtell with Red Rock has opened to the public. 

Coffs Harbour Mayor Denise Knight will join Coffs Coast Regional Trust Park chair Bob Palmer and NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service North Coast Manager Alan Jeffrey at this morning's official opening.

"This is a fantastic new tourist and community attraction for the Coffs region," Cr Knight said.

"Not only will it improve the links between our coastal communities and businesses, but it will strengthen the local tourism industry by bringing even more visitors to experience our wonderful coastline.

The project is the fruition of a partnership between the council, the National Parks and Wildlife Service and the Coffs Coast Regional Park Trust.

Parts of the walk have also been funded by the NSW Environmental Trust through the Our Living Coast programme.

Consultation with tourism operators, the community and the Gumbaynggirr Aboriginal community helped to develop a plan to guide and attract visitors to the walk, as well as enrich the experience with story-telling.

A suite of signs has also been created for the entire length of the walk that will mark the route, point out items of interest and share the Aboriginal and European heritage of the area with visitors.

In addition, a pocket-sized folding brochure and map has been published for people to take with them on the Walk.

"We know that the wonderful nature and cultural experiences people can have in our parks and natural places continue to be the most motivating reason for people to travel," Mr Jeffrey said.
