Only a whale's tail is visible above the surface as it dives beneath the ocean

The route between Woolgoolga Beach Reserve to the existing Solitary Islands Coastal Walk is already a popular walk for locals and visitors. Upgrading the walkway will offer greater pedestrian safety, improved accessibility, attract visitors and foster economic opportunities for Woolgoolga.

Project scope

Detailed designs are now underway for the Woolgoolga Whale Trail.

The designs will consider community feedback received during extensive community consultations as well as environmental factors, cultural heritage assessments, accessibility, safety, engineering and construction standards and the key grant requirement that the pathway connects Woolgoolga Beach Reserve with the Solitary Islands Coastal Walk.

Construction will begin following approval and finalisation of the detailed designs.


The project is funded by a $1.1 million Community Development Grant, through the Commonwealth Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications.
