Project Summary

Sunshine Coast Council is excited to announce plans for improvements to Alex Bluff Foreshore Park at Alexandra Headland. This beloved council-wide park, famous for its breathtaking views, attracts locals and visitors alike to enjoy picnicking, surfing, taking in the scenery, and various recreational activities. With placemaking principles in mind, council aims to enhance the park while retaining its relaxed atmosphere and character with proposed landscape improvements.

Council has developed concept designs focusing on two areas of the park, ‘The Corner’ (Alex Wall) and Coastal Pathway Boardwalk, as part of high-level planning in the park.

Community Engagement

The Alex Bluff Foreshore Park Improvements Survey was open from 28 March to 19 April 2023, giving the community opportunity to provide feedback on the proposed concept designs for ‘The Corner’ and the Coastal Pathway Boardwalk. This followed consultation with residents and special interest groups from 2020 to 2023, and circulation of project information by email and hardcopy distribution.

Over 320 survey responses were received, providing Council with valuable information on visitation to the area, and on the respondents’ opinions on the concept designs.

The proposal for ‘the Corner’ was supported by over two thirds (67.69%) of respondents, while the proposed boardwalk received backing from more than 72% of survey participants.

2. Coastal Pathway Boardwalk

The proposed Coastal Pathway Boardwalk is an essential link in the Coastal Pathway network, providing wheelchair access to the steepest section between Mooloolaba Foreshore Park through to Maroochydore. The boardwalk’s design thoughtfully incorporates existing trees, offering scenic ocean glimpses, creating a stunning “tree-top” walk experience.
