The Gold Coast Oceanway is a thirty-six kilometre stretch of pathways that reaches from The Spit to the Point Danger Lighthouse in Coolangatta. The track is a Gold Coast Council initiative that provides members of the public with an eco-friendly way to explore the beaches of the Gold Coast. The paths can be walked or cycled.
The Oceanway has nine different segments. Each is marked with a distance marker post that provides information about your position on the path.
Southern Points Promenande is officially the beginning of the walk (although walkers may enter or exit from any point). The 2.9 kilometre path runs from the Queensland-New South Wales border and through Rainbow Beach and Coolangatta.
The Southern Beach Villages track runs through the towns of Kirra, Bilinga and Tugun and is 4.8 kilometres long.
Currumbin Oceanway is 3.7 kilometres long. It explores the Currumbin Headlands and Currmbin Creek, including surfing spots and parks.
The Tallebudgera Oceanway is perhaps the most beautiful. Check out national parks and pristine beaches between Palm Beach and Burleigh, a distance of 6.2 kilometres.
Central Beaches Villages brings walkers into the more populated regions of the Gold Coast. The path links Burleigh to Mermaid Beach and runs for 5.7 kilometres. Scenery includes panoramic coastal views and multi-million dollar houses.
Broadbeach Oceanway is an easy, flat walk from Mermaid Beach to Fern Street in Broadband. Along the 2.5 kilometre path you will find beaches, surf clubs and the Robert Gatenby boardwalk.
Surfers Paradise Oceanway opens up the tourism centre of the Gold Coast. See the sights and lights of Surfers and the famous Cavill Avenue. This path is 3.6 kilometres.
Main Beach Oceanway takes walkers along Main Beach, a popular tourist spot in Surfers Paradise. Narrowneck and the former site of the Telegraph Cable Station are worth seeing.
And the final stretch is The Spit Oceanway, or Federation Walk. This path is 3.7 kilometres long and runs from Sea World to the Gold Coast Seaway. Points of interest include the sand bypass jetty and the southern training wall of the Seaway.
