Cabarita Northern Foreshore Walk

Cabarita Northern Foreshore Walk
This walk commences in the foreshore area of Pandanus Avenue. The area in front of the Beach Apartments and the Surf Life Saving Club is a nicely kept lawn and paved spot. Public toilets are situated in the SLSC building. Walks radiate from this point of Interest. South up the hill into the Litterol Forest is called the Cabarita Foreshore Trail. That trail leads to Norries Headland.
One can also step onto the beach to enjoy that option.

The walk along the foreshore reserve to the north is the trail I have depicted in the images below.

Length 700 metres one way - 1.4 km return
Grade 2 but lacks signage
Time Allow 7 minutes one way or 15 minutes return
No experience required

Small viewing platform and the path winding down from the Littoral Forest to the Pub and SLSC

The northern foreshore is the easiest of walks

Sea views and the dunal area are always a joy

The walk turns west in the fire buffer zone which separates the residential zone
to the Cudgen Nature Reserve stretching to the north.

This is the point where the Foreshore Walk meets the  Cycleway alongside the Tweed Coast Road right at the northern entry to the village. You have the option to return via the beach or through the village Commercial area or cross the Tweed Coast Road to walk to the Cudgen Lake on the Northern Perimeter Trail.
