Shared pathway from Cudmirrah to Swanhaven.

This progress association has recently completed stage 3 of their project of building a shared pathway from Cudmirrah to Swanhaven to alleviate bicycle riders from having to ride the dangerous section of Springs Road. It is an excellent gentle walk suitable for all ages and wanders along the banks of Swan Lake. It is mostly concrete pathway
except where we had to have a gravel section because it is an easement area and has to be accessed by the electricty and council water vehicles.

There is also a section of boardwalk that was built for us by our Sussex Inlet Mens Shed. A lovely way to enjoy nature, the different trees and views over Swan Lake

The Shared pathway

is a popular walk/ride for locals and tourists alike. Great views of Swan Lake and the wildlife on it. Walk along the wetland area under beautiful Bangalay Gum trees.

Look for the black swans on the lake. Walking south back from Dyball Reserve, Swanhaven, keep an eye out for a view of Pigeonhouse Mountain over the trees and mountains.

Our Association has worked hard to build this shared cycleway/walkway

Other Bushwalks
