Other planned events: Temporary closure of Boambee Creek Bridge during weekdays at southern end of Solitary Islands Coastal Walk

Please be aware that at the southern end of Solitary Islands Coastal Walk (SICW) there is temporary closure which impacts walker access between Boambee Beach and Boambee Headland.

 

The Boambee Creek Bridge footbridge will be closed Mon- Fri 6am-6pm until July 2024 (project finish date TBC). 

 

It is recommended walkers attempt this section during weekends, during times which the pedestrian access bridge is open to the public.

 

Please be aware that Boambee Creek is several metres deep with a strong tidal flow to the ocean, so safe crossing requires using the bridge.

 

Alternatively, should you wish to pass during the closure window - please bypass Boambee Beach via town roads with adjacent concrete walking paths:

Southbound - from the Coffs Harbour Jetty - walk 1.6km west along Harbour Drive to Hogbin Dr roundabout, then 6.6km south down Hogbin Drive walking track to Sawtell Rd roundabout, then 1.3km east along Sawtell Road to Boambee Headland - continue south on SICW. 

Northbound - from Boambee Headland - walk 1.3km west along Sawtell Road to Hogbin Dr roundabout, then 6.6km north along Hogbin Drive walking track to Harbour Dr roundabout and 1.6km east along Harbour Drive to the Coffs Harbour Jetty - continue north on SICW.

 

This project is outside of NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service managed lands, but this notice is to inform visitors that these works will affect the SICW walk route continuation further south of the Coffs Coast Regional Park.
