Whitsunday Regional Council have commenced an approval process with the Queensland Government to construct a walking track between the coastal towns of Dingo Beach and Hydeaway Bay.
The track would initially be an earth walking track, with the possibility of converting it to a sealed path which could be used as a cycleway.
The alignment of the walkway has already been flagged and Council are now awaiting approval from the Queensland Government.
Acting Mayor Mike Brunker said the walking track would be a great addition to the Cape Gloucester area.
“This track will provide a welcome connection between these two beautiful towns and add an extra activity for visitors in the area,” he said.
“The walkway will offer breathtaking views of the azure bays and offer magnificent vistas over Gloucester and Saddleback Island.
“This is just another way we can discover the hidden gems in our backyard.
“State approval can take some time; however, we are confident that approval can be achieved this year,” Cr Brunker said.
Council will apply for a grant to construct the track once the required approval has been granted.
