We started at the top of the hill on Boundary St at Point Danger and walked back along wharf street to Boundary street and clocked 9.6km. It’s certainly quicker to come back that way but admittedly not as pleasant as walking along the water and would definitely depend on where you parked. The bushtrack is about 5km in so don’t think you have gone too far. A very flat and pleasant walk with only the hill at the end which could be avoided if you parked at Duranbah.

I started at the Chris Cunningham Park and headed toward the river, away from the Twin Towns Services Club. Strolled along the river to the Island Drive bridge then headed back. Took just under an hour all up. Wide, flat path the whole way shared with bikes.

Beautiful walk with hidden gems.

Unfortunately the boardwalk is still closed. We tried to go around it by following a bush track but the track came to an end and we needed to turn back and retrace our steps.

A nice walk for early morning or late afternoon. The boardwalk was closed to the public so hopefully it opens up again soon. It's probably the nicest part of the walk.
