As a part of the Coral Coast Pathways walking tracks, the Elliot Heads Section provides a unique coastal experience. The Journey commences at Life Savers Park at the mouth of the Elliot River through to Bill Stockwell Park at the northern point of Elliot Heads overlooking rural land then beyond to the northern area of Coral Cove. Footpaths line the coastline allowing all a leisurely stroll and enjoying the fresh sea air.
The beach is approximately 50-150 metres long depending on the tide with a rocky foreshore at both the northern and southern end of the beach. At high tide the beach is 150 metres wide, however at low tide the beach expands out due to the sand flats built over the years by tidal currents, you can often walk out 200-300 metres seaward. It is also the home of the Elliot Heads Surf Life Saving Club.
The Submarine Lookout is positioned close to the coastline, the memorial is a tribute to the 10th Battalion, Volunteer Defence Corps, who manned the site as an observation position during World War II. Two of the original posts that supported the shelter are still in place and an ANZAC Day Memorial has been built on the site. The space surrounding the lookout is known as the Elliot Heads Memorial Park.
At the North of the Elliot Heads Memorial Park just off the Esplanade on Wondrock Street is Seagulls Park. This is a lovely spot for families to get together and relax or play, right near the coastline. Elliott Heads is a stunning location and well worth the trip. Don't forget to bring the camera.
