Smooth & flat
Starting from the car park of Maroochy Wetlands Sanctuary Visitor Centre, Bli Bli, this walk takes you to the foreshore of Maroochy River and back via a singular boardwalk, visiting a scenic jetty midway. You’ll be able to focus on your surroundings and the informative signs along the way as the flat 2-metre wide boardwalk gets rid of footing and navigation issues. The said boardwalk is also wheelchair accessible so more people can enjoy the picturesque wetlands. The area has a tranquil and remote feel to it, and you’ll probably notice this as you get closer to the river. The jetty itself is a great place to pause and have a little snack as you take in the scenery. Keep an eye out for different species of birds along with some timid crabs. Keep in mind that you can also acces the jetty if you book a boat cruise that comes with a guided walk. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
