Federation Walk - Journey - Queensland

Federation Walk

Multiple Locations

Federation Walk is a 3.5 kilometre pedestrian walkway located on a natural section of the area known as The Spit. Federation Walk begins at a fig tree in the parking lot opposite the entrance to Sea World. The walk continues through patches of rainforest where regular community planting days are held. After leaving the Federation Walk Coastal Reserve, the walk continues under the sand bypass jetty and along the pathway to the southern training wall of the Gold Coast Seaway. The tip of the walk is at the end of the Gold Coast ocean way from where you can take in spectacular views of the coastline.

The Federation Walk Coastal Reserve is one of the few remaining areas of undeveloped dune system on the Gold Coast and is part of a regionally significant corridor of coastal vegetation. A network of established paths and tracks throughout this beautiful reserve allow for hiking, jogging, cycling, birdwatching or simply sitting under the trees and listening to the birds singing accompanied by the sounds of the ocean.
