Sandstone steps to be installed on coastal walk
Striking sandstone steps will be part of an upgrade of the coastal walk at Bouddi National Park.
National Parks and Wildlife Service manager Ms Angela Lonergan said that, from April 18, a section of the track would be closed while the old wooden steps at the Maitland Bay Headland were replaced.
"Materials have to be flown in by helicopter to this remote site so we have to close this part of the track for public safety," Ms Lonergan said.
"There will be no through access at Maitland Bay headland.
"However, there will still be pedestrian access on either side of the works towards Putty or MacMasters Beach.
"Visitors can still enjoy the pristine beaches and sweeping views from sections of the coastal walk but they'll need to plan ahead to avoid disappointment.
"In the southern section, people can walk from Putty Beach to Maitland Bay, exiting up to Maitland Bay carpark and in the northern section visitors can walk from MacMasters to the Mt Bouddi track intersection.
